    Problem in http to https switching in struts

    Bhanuprakash singh Newbie

      Hi ,

      Iam developing application in struts which has login page and
      when username and password are given it should be authenticated and
      the page should be switched to https
      I had made necessary changes to include <transport-guarantee>
      and login-config to include the user properties
      but the
      <form-login-config>
      <form-login-page>/display.jsp</form-login-page>
      <form-error-page>/error.jsp</form-error-page>
      </form-login-config>
      </login-config>
      is forcing it to go to the pages display.jsp
      instead it should go
      to NameAction java file which extends Action and based on the logic there
      i should go to the required success or error page
      and iam not understanding the importance of <form-login-config>
      like if i remove the lines
      <form-login-config>
      <form-login-page>/display.jsp</form-login-page>
      <form-error-page>/error.jsp</form-error-page>
      </form-login-config>
      </login-config>

      i get the exceptions


      18:59:15,687 WARN [FormAuthenticator] Unexpected error forwarding to login page
