Subject Re: how to forward user to a page after container manager authntication ?
Date Sat, 09 Sep 2006 22:07:42 GMT
Container-managed authentication works by intercepting a request for a 
protected (constrained) resource and redirecting to the page with the 
logon form.  Once the user authenticated, the request for the 
constrained resource continues, in effect, the user is "forwarded" to 
what they requested in the first place.  Therefore, to do what you want, 
the request that results in the logon page being shown should be for 
login_done (JSP? .do?)  Make that the default document in web.xml if 
that's what you need.
