Hi Luda,

You don't need to use redirects in Cocoon 2, you can do username and password authentication
using actions.
This way you don't even need to write esql tags yourself.

The DatabaseAuthenticatorAction is the best one to use.

Make sure it is mapped in your sitemap's <map:actions> section:
<map:actions>
	<map:action name="authenticate" src="org.apache.cocoon.acting.DatabaseAuthenticatorAction"/>
	...
</map:actions>

Then you can use a match section like:

<!-- ====================================================================
This matcher authenticates the user.
======================================================================-->
<map:match pattern="page_after_login"> <!-- the form action is 'page_after_login'
-->

	<!-- use the authenticate action to validate user login -->
	<map:act type="authenticate">
		<!-- Name the descriptor file that describes the database columns to compare -->
		<map:parameter name="descriptor" value="context://auth.xml"/>
		
		<!-- if the authenticate action succeeds then this section is executed -->
  		<map:generate type="serverpages" src="page_after_login.xsp"/>
   		<map:transform src="page2html.xsl"/>
		<map:serialize/>
	</map:act>

	<!-- if the authenticate action fails then this section is executed -->
   	<map:generate type="serverpages" src="login_failure.xsp"/>
   	<map:transform src="page2html.xsl"/>
   	<map:serialize/>

</map:match>

The auth.xml file that describes the database columns to compare will look something like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<auth>
  <connection>my_connection</connection>
  <table name="enduser">
	<select dbcol="username" request-param="username"/>
	<select dbcol="password" request-param="password"/>
  </table>
</auth>

You'll need to adjust the paths in the above sitemap example to suit your webapp structure.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,

Chris
