Subject: j_security_check
Message-ID: <>
I have a strange problem, can someone tell me what is wrong?
I use form based authentication with Websphere using custom registry,
setup in web.xml is as below.
when I tried to access a protected resource URL,, since everything
under dir "/main" is defined to be protected in the web.xml, I was
brought to the login page as expected, after submit the form with the
j_username and j_password, I got a 404 file not found, as below,
but in fact the user had been authenticated because if I resubmit the
same URL link, I was able to access that URL link.
Can someon tell me what is wrong with it or my setup?

How did you solve this issue? I have this problem now. What is even more weirder is that I have this problem only with IE and not with Firefox/Opera
