Subject Re: j_security_check with https
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2009 23:07:05 GMT
My question is how to combine the form based authentication, where we use
"jsecuritycheck" , "jusername" etc with https.
As far as I know if we use form based authentication username and
password will be authenticated by the container managed resource
called 'jsecuritycheck". But the data transfer from client browser to
tomcat will be still a plain text. i want to encrypt this and
obviously i need to use https.
So how to combine both  and how tomcat wil help me doping this??
