Subject Re: j_security_check 404 not found

I'm suspecting you either link to /j_security_check or manually forward 
there from your pages.  Pages in your web project shouldn't ever link to 
it except the login form and even then only in the action attribute of 
the form tag.  Tomcat will take control when it sees a client trying to 
access a protected resource without a valid session and return the login 
page.  Your code doesn't have to ever do that.
