I have a little problem.
My web apllication have a Form base authentication.
My login page have the parameter j_username, j_password and action j_security_check. It works fine, but in some case tomcat return: 404 j_security_check not found.
I have jboss-2.4.10 with tomcat 4.0.6.
Is a bug of Tomcat?
Is a configuration error?
Have a read of this thread:
http://www.jboss.org/modules/bb/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t= post on Jun 11, 2003 5:59 PM explains it nicely.
FORM based authentication is VERY anoying... and it's interesting to note the this site (www.jboss.org) doesn't look like it is using it for there login functionality :)
