1. I have enabled administrator security in websphere. When I give the admin page, it asks me username/password, it works well.
2. I have written a HelloWorld servlet (deployed in websphere app server) and given the BASIC authentication mechanism in web.xml as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

< !DOCTYPE web-app<br /> PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"<br /> "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd">

Example servlets








If I give the URL to access this servlet, the window security box appears but when I give the username/password, it says "You are not authorized to view this page".
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
