I'm attempting a simple Form-Based login to authenticate a user and give access to my site. I authenticate their username and password against a database and based on the role they have (also stored in the database) I grant them access. I'm using Tomcat 4's JDBCRealm to authenticate.
Unfortunately my results are very inconsistent. Sometimes I'm able to login and sometimes I get 404(Resourse not found) errors. In the address bar I notice it reads: "<myApp>/j_security_check" when it should be forwarding it to "<myApp>/index.jsp". Also I sometimes get a 401 (Invalid Redirect) error. Below is the relevant code to my login page, taken straight from tutorials. Any help would be appreciated.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
