    j_securitycheck error 404

    Steve Tang Newbie

      I have a webapp running. When I try to access a protected page, it will take me to the login page. There, I enter the user name and password. When i submit the form, the login page is shown again. If i enter my login info again, it will take me to an error page with the following information:

      HTTP Status 404 - /j_security_check

      type Status report

      message /j_security_check

      description The requested resource (/j_security_check) is not available.

      if, however, I refresh the page after the login page is shown for the second time, I am taken to the protected page. This issue is intermittent.

      <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache"/>
      <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1"/>

      - Followed the instructions to disable caching from

      The following is snippet of my web.xml

      <web-resource-name>Protected Site</web-resource-name>

      I'll appreciate any help i can get in order to get this issue resolved
