Subject form based authentication with catalina not working?
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2001 09:43:25 GMT
I'm having problems with form based authentication with the latest releases
on tomcat4. Things work fine in 4.0-b1, but with the latest snapshots no
cookie is being sent with the login page, and although authentication
succeeds, redirection to the secured page fails with a 400 error returned.
This behaviour can be produced in 4.0-b1 by refusing to accept the cookie.

Is this a bug, or has something changed in how sessions/cookies are handled?

Help appreciated.
