I have some questions about which way is the best way to handle a login.

j_security_check or your own custom login?

What is the difference between using j_security_check and writing your own login? Is there any benefit to writing your own login? Is there anything negative or limiting about using j_security_check? Why would you use one instead of the other?

What do you think?

Hi Scott,

It's a big question. Here is the very good link for the nice article from O'Reilly, http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2001/08/06/webform.html

I have found 'Form based' authentication (aka container authentication) is very useful in single sign-on, where you can access all the applications installed on the container with one user id.

Thanks
