I'm using the information by "harsh" in the pagehttp://www.javaworld.com/javaforums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=JavaSecurity&Number=2500&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1 to build my web's user-login feature. This is because it is one of the very few distilled and quite complete page on this subject.
However, I've not been able to perform logon. After analyzing the details, I find its login.jsp questionable. First, it doesn't have j_security_check as its action name. Second, its action is "logon.do", which should launch the page itself as indicated in web.xml (refer to tag <form-login-page/>).
Therefore, I'd appreciate it if whoever has tried using information before could tell me whether the info actually works. Appreciate it too if anybody could tell me what one should do to make it work.
