The following is the web.xml content

...............................

<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<http-method>
GET
</http-method>
<url-pattern>
/secret
</url-pattern>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
role1
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>

<login-config>
<auth-method>
FORM
</auth-method>
<realm-name>
Tomcat Manager Application
</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>
/login.jsp
</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>
/app
</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

...............................

if i put the following in http://localhost:8080/security/secret then the login page

appears. But when i put the user name and password for role role1, i am getting the error

page, that is /app. Any idea. Thanxs in advance.

"Mr Rancher",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

"arjuna",

Bear wrote quite specifically that a first name and a last name are required. Please change you name so that it conforms to the policy.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Does the URL /secret actually resolve to something valid?
