UserDatabase needs changes

Every time I look at the JMX console I remind myself that UserDatabase needs to be fixed before Tomcat5 is shiped. It is just very wrong - you can't scale if all users are in memory, and JMX will become useless if you have 1 mbean for each user.



If UserDatabase returns a simple Hashtable with the user info - it would be quite easy to use JSP-EL to display and manipulate the info. The ideal solution is to turn UserDatabase into a JNDI DirContext - but I'm not even 1/2 way with the JNDI proposal.
