Subject Re: Strange behavior about Jetty admin-console
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 06:41:59 GMT
I think the reason may be that Jetty does not keep consistent behavior with
the _dispatch property in the FormAuthenticator. After the successful
authentication, the jetty always use redirect action, while in the other
places of the class, it takes different actions depending on the _dispatch
In Geronimo console, the value of _dispatch is true, so it forwards to the
login page, and redirect after the successful authentication, I guess that
it also depends on how the browser handle the redirect, maybe if it found
the current ulr is the same with the redirect url, it ignores the request
I would like to set this value with false in Geronimo, or shall we open a
bug in Jetty community ?
