    filter for j_security_check not called

    John Vrab Newbie

      I am using form-based authentiation and JBoss 3.2.1/Tomcat 4.1.24 with j_security_check. I added a filter for j_security_check to do some pre-login checking. The web.xml is like the following:


      <filter-name>loginFilter</filter-name>
      <display-name>login filter</display-name>
      <filter-class>my.package.LoginFilter</filter-class>

      <filter-mapping>
      <filter-name>loginFilter</filter-name>
      <url-pattern>/j_security_check</url-pattern>
      </filter-mapping>

      The doFilter() method never gets called. Am i missing something? Is my JBOSS/Tomcat bundle a problem? I see other postings like this but no helpful replies. Please help. Thanks
