Subject filter-mapping for j_security_check
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2007 16:05:21 GMT


I have an app with container managed security.  There is a login form that
uses j_username and j_password to post to j_security_check.  I would like to
perform some validation on the j_username and j_password to make sure the
data entered is valid before checking the credentials against the db.  I
tried using a filter with filter-mapping in web.xml, but the filter isn't
getting called.  Below is the filter mapping.  Does anyone know how to do
this in geronimo 2.0?  Is this possible?  



I also tried the mapping without the <dispatcher> elements and it didn't
work either.   Thanks for any more information or clarification.
