    Accessing j_username and j_password

    Paul Anderson Newbie

      Hi,

      I have read through most of the posts on this forum concerning how one would go about getting access to the j_username and j_password values of a logged in user. I followed the instructions here:

      http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ExtendedFormAuthenticator

      An example of how I am trying to access the values in my JSP is as follows:

       <%
       String username = (String) session.getAttribute("j_username");
       String password = (String) session.getAttribute("j_password");
       %>
       <p>Username: <%=username%></p>
       <p>Password: <%=password%></p>
      


      All is get is "null" for both username and password.... what am I doing wrong?

      Kind regards,
      Paul.
