I've been trying to modify Tomcat's (4.0) AccessLogValve so that the to have it look at a custom session object to determine the user. Pretty straightforward change, except for classloader issues. According to http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.0-doc/class-loader-howto.html, I should just be able to move the class file which defines the object to the $CATALINA_HOME/common/classes directory, and then the class will be accessible to catalina as well as webapp's. Unfortunately, my webapp does not find it then.
