Subject RE: How does Tomcat manage Form-based authentication?
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2004 15:03:59 GMT
It sends you the html form you specify in the <form-login-config>
section of web.xml

See chapter 12 (Security) Appendix A (Deployment Descriptor) of Servlet
Spec 2.3 for details.

With BASIC authorization, which I used to use, the browser was sent an 
"Authorization" header.

This doesn't happen with FORM-based authorization.
I believe Tomcat deals with it all, but how? Anybody know?
