New Support for Virtual Server Realms

In an ISP/ASP environment, it is often useful to be able to configure a security realm at the virtual server level, with the expectation that this security realm apply to all web applications deployed on the virtual server.

GlassFish v2-b26 supports this requirement, by introducing a new property named "authRealm" at the <virtual-server> level, whose value must be the name of an authentication realm declared in domain.xml.

Standalone web applications (that is, those not bundled in an EAR file) now inherit the realm referenced by the "authRealm" property (if any) of the virtual server on which they are deployed, unless they specify a realm in their web.xml deployment descriptor, which takes precedence.
