Hi Claus,

According to the official servlet specification one cannot directly link to
the login form. The user must always be redirected (because he entered a
protected URL) to the login form for it to work. This behavior prohibits one
to have a log in form an every page. It's like this in the servlet spec and
there is no way around.

However, there is an open source project called SecurityFilter, that
provides a different authentication mechanism. I can't use it because it
doesn't support single sign-on (they are still working on that), but may be
it's good for you. have a look at for
the details.
