Hello everyone,
I am trying to implement form based authentication using JAAS in mysql and tomcat.
I followed the tutorial here

I have added roles in tomcat-users.xml and also security configuration in web.xml of the project.
the application runs but even if I enter correct user credentials, I am redirected to error page only.
Please help me regarding this, tomcat log doesn't show any error also.

this is the database realm configuration for mysql in server.xml in tomcat

the web.xml security configuration is

I have added the manager role in tomcat-users.xml is as follows

I start the application and visit http://localhost:8080/security-form-based/protected/index.jsp
it correctly redirects me to login page but when I enter username and password, it always redirects me to error page.

what could be the solution for this? I am stuck with this for 2 days now.

in the database,

the role allotted for user 'prasad' is 'manager' and the password is 'kharkar'

I have configured the manager role in tomcat-users.xml

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
