I am facing a major difficulty. It is as follows :
I have entered the following in web.xml
<security-constraint id="SecurityConstraint_1">
<web-resource-collection id="WebResourceCollection_1">
<auth-constraint id="AuthConstraint_1">
<user-data-constraint id="UserDataConstraint_1">
Here /jsp/ILM/HomePage.jsp , /manualSetup.do are the resources to be protected . I have entered role as CategoryManager.

When i enter http://localhost:9080/ILMWeb/.. /HomePage.jsp

I am directed to Authentication page of WAS where i can enter Username and password as per the user's password in Active Directory.Having done this , when the username and password entered are correct I am directed again to Authentication page
where i entered username and password . At this stage i should be directed to HomePage.jsp as per the URL entered . This is because the username and password entered by me are correct.
Can u please help regarding this issue ?
May i know how did you tackle this problem ?
Waiting for your reply

Hi Pritam,
I won't answer to your private email 'cause I believe the JavaRanch thread is a better place for your problem. There are a lot of people around there who will be glad to help you.

My understanding of you problem is that you are prompted for login twice, although the credentials you've entered are correct the first time.
Is it really the problem you are running into ?
It could be useful to specify which version of WebSphere you test on, and which kind of authentication you've implemented. My guess is LTPA but....
