This is interesting. At first when I saw this post, I was thinking (wrongly ) ... hmmm this one needs a mandatory <auth-method> so this code will not work like that.
Then I looked into the Servlet 2.3 DTD, and realized that all 3 sub-elements (auth-method, realm-name, form-login-config) are optional. (0 /1)
Then I ran some tests with Tomcat and found that the container starts ok. It does not wine about the web.xml. But when I try to invoke even index.html under the context root, it gives me 404 error.
