Form-based login is still container-managed, so the description in the
servlet spec still applies.

That certainly wasn't clear from your original question - there was no
mention of accessing the login form directly.

In any event, the Tomcat 5.5 admin app uses form-based login, so it's a
convenient tool to experiment with.  Attempting to access the form
directly (/admin/login.jsp) results in the form being displayed
properly, but when it's submitted, a 404 is returned with the
description "The requested resource (/admin/j_security_check) is not
available."  This makes sense, since Tomcat didn't do a save of the the
original request and generate an internal one for the login page, so it
doesn't know that login processing is going on.
