Dear All,

I have a big stupid question.

I visited the source file of

I could not identify the target of action in the form.
Here is the original code"
<h1>Login page for examples</h1>

<form method="POST" action="j_security_check" >
<input type="text" name="j_username">
<input type="password" name="j_password">

<input type="submit" name="j_security_check">

My question is: what does "j_securiry_check" stand for?
I have been searching  for it around for about 3 days.
Can anybody enlighten me?

Thanks a million!
