hey,

i am new to the whole servlets & jsp story and i'm playing around a little with security constraints ...

i chose FORM as the auth type, created users in the tomcat-users.xml file, but when i try to log on, it will always forward me to the error page.

here is my code

login.html



web.xml



tomcat-users.xml



does anybody know what the problem is ??

also, how would i retrieve the role and user information from a database, rather than using and xml file?

thank you

... you might find the "Defining a JDBCRealm" section of this article useful:

thank you :-)

i have solved the tomcat-users.xml problem.

i was editing the xml file under tomcat/conf. eclipse however has it's own copy somewhere deep in the dir structure.
