Subject FORM authentication behaves like BASIC authentication....
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2009 11:50:50 GMT

Hi, anyone come across the situation where a webapp is coded to use FORM
based authentication but behaves as if it was using BASIC authentication i.e
OS username/password dialog pops up instead of the redirection to the login
form. The web.xml is very basic so i'm almost thinking its something in the
tomcat/eclipse configuration perhaps?

Thanks in advance.
