I'm using tomcat and looking at creating Form Based Authentication as described in the the chanpetr on security in HeadFirst.

I've also looked at the tomcat example as described in the Documentation 6) Realms and AAA. This works fine, but my own version which identically follows theirs doesn't and produces the following error when attempting to login.


type Status report

message /test/j_security_check

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

I must be missing something.

Can anybody help - it would be nice to get it working,

Thanks - Peter

What is the <login-config> element from your web.xml. Additionally, post your html <form>, which is using FORM based authentication.

Here's the <login-config> in my web.xml

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<realm-name>Example Form-Based Authentication Area</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/loginPage.html</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/errorPage.html</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

Here's the loginPage.html

<html>
<head>
<title>Login</title>
</head>
<body>
<b>Please login</b>
<form method="POST" action="j_security_check">
<input type="text" name="j_username">
<input type="password" name="j_password">
<input type="submit" value="Enter"
</form>
</body>
</html>


I've checked it several times, but I still get the message j_security_check not available.

Thanks

Peter

Do we need <realm-name>Example Form-Based Authentication Area</realm-name> for form based authentication? Isn't it only for BASIC?
