Subject Using external login pages for web applications
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2002 12:39:48 GMT

our public internet site should contain a form which allows the user
to type in his/her user name and password.
Then, the user should be logged in with this data in a web application.

Does the form based login mechanism of tomcat support such a login
procedure or does it require that the user tries to access a protected
page before he/she can type in the username and password?

It would be more convenient to have a login form on a external (high
traffic) site than requesting the user to click a link to a different
login page. (one more click scares away a lot of users)

Is there a solution or is this already a supported scenario?

Thank You,
