Subject Re: FORM based authentication pages
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2003 13:13:20 GMT
Sorry, tomcat doesn't provide that functionality. A "simple" workaround is to 
   keep those pages in a shared area then on site build (I hope your using 
ant), copy those files into your webapp.

If there is, how do I setup my web.xml file?
