    Auto Login

    James Birchfield Newbie

      Using FORM based authentication, is it possible to 'auto login' by providing the j_username and j_password request variables like this?

      http://some.host/webapp/protected/page.jsp?j_username=foo&j_password=bar ?

      It does not appear to work. I am trying JBoss 246-Tomcat 4.0.3, but can just as easily try with Jetty. With Tomcat, I think I would have to rewrite FormAuthenticator.

      Any thoughts?

      Thanks!
