Until version 3.0 of webserver the only way to do this is via the OWA
replacement cartridge or CGI-BIN program available on http://govt.us.oracle.com
under downloadable utilities. It will work with webserver 1.0, 2.0 and 2.1 (but
not 3.x) and provides more then just database authentication in addition to all
you get the code and the binaries.
