Config Azure AD authentication on tomcat

Just made a simple demo project (not for production purposes) that shows you how you can use the Azure Active Directory as a REALM for your authentication. Nowadays you would use a framework that does 3rd party authentication for you…your custom authenticator will use a third party framework that federates the authentication to a (trusted) 3rd party like Facebook or Google.

Please note that this is NOT the way to use AAD in a production environment.
This is Demo code to show how you can (mis)use AAD as a LDAP solution.
In future I will create a federated authentication solution using AAD.

Here is the project: https://github.com/cvugrinec/microsoft/tree/master/java-webapp-tomcat-aad
