Cascade behind Apache

Is there any issue with setting up Cascade to run Tomcat as a non-root user behind Apache with mod_proxy_ajp? We're considering using Shibboleth to authenticate Cascade and our intention is to let Apache do the heavy lifting and authenticate users and have a custom authenticator pick up REMOTE_USER and some extra validation from the Shibboleth attributes.

Alternatively, if someone has source they're willing to share for a Shibboleth custom authenticator we'd happily look at that as well.

    Hi Joel,

    There is no issue with running as a non-root user, so long as the user who Cascade Server is running under has read and write permissions to the directory in which Cascade Server is installed in.
