Chap. 7 states that if you're using FORM authentication, you must use a POST HTTP method. I've looked through the specification, and I don't see anywhere that states this, other than the fact that the example provided in the spec uses a POST. However, as anyone who has tried an example knows, you can very well use GET with FORM authentication, and your servlet will work. Is this just another one of the authors' many blunders, or is there real credibility behind the statement?
I have to agree with the poster stating that they use this book as ways to find out what is NOT right and what is. Sort of like using braindumps
Sybex obviously wanted the money, and didn't care a bit about quality in this case. I've generally had high reviews of their books until this one.
(I did a search on the forums but couldn't find any other posts discussing this, which I find hard to believe)
