Subject Tomcat 4.1: Problem/Bug with authentication - Please inform
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 15:18:29 GMT
I would very much appreciate your rapid response in the matter:
I am using Tomcat 4.1 and I have configured a certain area as protected:
I am using JDBCRealm "org.apache.catalina.realm.JDBCRealm" and a MYSQL
I have the configuration setup such that requests to the protected area
get redirected to a login.jsp which is accompanied by an error.jsp in
case of authentication failure.
The process works very well if a user enters an invalid username and/or
password (i.e. authentication failure results in redirection to
error.jsp); however, if the username and password are both valid but
role assigned to the user is not allowed in the protected area, NO
redirection to error.jsp takes place and instead a status 403 is
returned to the WebServer.
I have tried forums and newsgroups but no one seems to have a solution.
Please note that the problem was not present in Tomcat 3.3.
Your attention to the matter is greatly appreciated,
Thank you,
