I am trying to work out Basic authentication in netbeans. I have created the following files:
index.jsp:

Request a secure Admin page here!


Request a secure User page here!



secureAdmin/pageA.html

secureUser/pageU.html

The struts-config.xml is as follows:

<security-constraint>
<display-name>AdminConstraint</display-name>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>admin</web-resource-name>
<description/>
<url-pattern>/secureAdmin/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>POST</http-method>
<http-method>HEAD</http-method>
<http-method>PUT</http-method>
<http-method>OPTIONS</http-method>
<http-method>TRACE</http-method>
<http-method>DELETE</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<description/>
<role-name>admin</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>
<security-constraint>
<display-name>UserConstraint</display-name>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>user</web-resource-name>
<description/>
<url-pattern>/secureUser/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>POST</http-method>
<http-method>HEAD</http-method>
<http-method>PUT</http-method>
<http-method>OPTIONS</http-method>
<http-method>TRACE</http-method>
<http-method>DELETE</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<description/>
<role-name>user</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>
<login-config>
<auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
</login-config>
<security-role>
<description/>
<role-name>admin</role-name>
</security-role>
<security-role>
<description/>
<role-name>user</role-name>
</security-role>

The problem is i m not getting the popup box which asks for username and password.

Could anyone help me on this.

Thanks in advance

Hi prasanna,

All the security rules you put in struts-config.xml don't have to be there.
They must go in web.xml

Hope it help !!!
