Hi,
I have a couple of secure areas on a webapp and need to add more. I have the following in my deployment descriptor:

My question is how can i make it such that different security access groups access different web resource collection. For example, I need to secure a new area called discounts and the person who can have access to the discounts can not access the above two.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Check this out:
<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>restricted methods</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>/acme/wholesale/*</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>/acme/retail/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>DELETE</http-method>
<http-method>PUT</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint/>
</security-constraint>

<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>wholesale</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/acme/wholesale/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>PUT</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>SALESCLERK</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>
<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>wholesale</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/acme/wholesale/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>POST</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>CONTRACTOR</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
<user-data-constraint>
<transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
</user-data-constraint>
</security-constraint>
...
...
That should do it.
