Hi,

@How do you do ? I hoppe well.
First of all I wanted to wish all users of this nice forum a happy new year!

I recently developp a webapp wiht security constraints settings. As you perhaps now it, it work with j_security_check on the
action-value of the form. The form hat two folders: a login-folder and a password-folder like use by j_security_check. That means
as names: j_username and j_paswword.

Now I want to get the loggin name of the logged user (on success). for some work on the next page
I tried:



But I allway got NULL on the string variable login !!!

Can anybody help me solve my problem?

Hello and a happy new year to you too.

Try to use in your next page (where you want to retrieve the user name) bellow code (if you use for example jsp):
<%= request.getUserPrincipal().getName() %>
This will retrieve the username that user inserted into the j_username field of login page.

Regards.

request.getRemoteUser() also returns the user's name.
