Hi All,

I am facing an issue with form based authentication.
When I access the secured URL, I am thrown the login.html which is configured in web.xml. The login.html's form method and action is POST and j_security_check
After I enter the valid userid and password, the browser redirects to http://localhost:8080/myapp/j_security_check
Furthermore it displays the error.html that is specified in the web.xml.

BASIC is working just fine. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with FORM based.

Can someone please help.
