Security AuthenticationProviders & returning a value

Hi all,

The Security Providers are configured in a Weblogic 7.
Does anyone knows if there is a way to return a value from the login module back to the application when the authentication process fails and a FailedLoginException is thrown?

I have my web.xml configured this way:

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/login.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/errorPage.jsp</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

Any time the login attempt fails, you get redirected to the errorPage.jsp. But what I want is to get some additional info from the security provider, e.g., an error code to display a different message according to the type of error.

Any help will be appreciated,
Thanks!
