Hi,

then, you can validate in servlet itself. why you want to go form based authentication?

yeah for that i did write a servlet, but my servlet is redirecting back to the login.html page, its not giving me the alert.

[code]
if(username.equals(loginname) && password.equals(pword))
{
session.setAttribute("UserName",username); response.sendRedirect("src/jsp/second.jsp");
}
else
{
response.sendRedirect("login.html");

}

here in else i can either give alert or redirect back to login.html but how do i get both, any suggestions please.

Alert , you means a JavaScript alert . If thats your need then How come a response from servlet execute those Client side javascript alert !

May be you can simply show a line of text with error message stating "Invalid User Name OR Password !" , for that , your Login Action Servlet looks like this ,



and on jsp page ,


I hope that's solve your problem . Now still you want that alert to be shown on wrong user id and password , then I suggest go for AJAX !
