Subject web.xml security configuration.
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 13:55:18 GMT
In my applications web.xml I have 

<security-constraint>
    <web-resource-collection>
      <web-resource-name>Read-WriteArea</web-resource-name>
      <description> accessible by  users of all roles</description>
      <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern><!-- was /* -->
      <http-method>GET</http-method>
      <http-method>POST</http-method>
      <http-method>PUT</http-method>
      <http-method>DELETE</http-method>
    </web-resource-collection>

    <auth-constraint>
      <description>These roles are allowed access</description>
      <role-name>read</role-name>
      <role-name>rwrite</role-name>
      <role-name>admin</role-name>
    </auth-constraint>
  </security-constraint>


If the url-pattern is /* I get my jdbc based form showing,
and password authentication using mySQL.

If I change it to /repository/index.jsp, i.e. the actual
file used, I don't get any authentication.

Any advice on what form this element should take please?

TIA, DaveP
