If we can't help you, it may be better to post to Tomcat mailing
lists.  (But for all I know, they sent you here.)

1. Can you connect to the database with psql.exe on the command
prompt, pgAdmin, or any other tool?
2. Did you remember to put the appropriate JDBC driver class
(postgresql.jar works, I've heard others work) in the Tomcat
classpath?
3. Does your xml configuration file have the right settings for the
connection?  Mine has
<Realm
	className="org.apache.catalina.realm.JDBCRealm"
	connectionName="<username>"
	connectionPassword="<password>"
	connectionURL="jdbc:postgresql://192.168.2.61:5432/<mydatabase>"
	driverName="org.postgresql.Driver"
	roleNameCol="categoryname"
	userCredCol="password"
	userNameCol="username"
	userRoleTable="logincategory_view"
	userTable="login_view"
	debug="99"/>

Of course, all values inside <>  (except for the opening and closing
greater than and less than) have the appropriate values filled in.

Good luck!
