Hi,

I am new to ACEGI. I want to know what is the necessity of using acegi when we can use form based authentication directly.
I know acegi supports all type of authentications. what way does it make diffrence in developing web application.

Say I devleoped web application with user mgmt running on tomcat server. I can force the security on tomcat server by using form based authetication right. Do explain me in detail

Thanks
Arathi

The Acegi home page lists a lot of features, many of which can't be achieved with regular web app security.
