Subject Re: IE & Firefox work fine, Mac, Google and Safari don't authenticate
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 22:43:56 GMT
Hi.

Since I doubt that many people here really feel like going through a bunch of lines of 
badly-formatted configuration, code and logs to figure out exactly what is wrong, I 
suggest that you search Google for
"tomcat form based authentication example" and use one of the numerous ones there as a 
reference.

There is something bizarre in your explanation and data however :

You say that the first part of the log is with Firefox, which works fine.
However, that part contains this line :

 > 69.207.4.57 - sor@sor.com [27/Mar/2011:15:34:30 -0700] "GET 
/Dynacorn/catalog/dealer/dealerwelcome.jsp HTTP/1.1" 500 2158

which shows a status code 500 (= "server error") returned by the server, while the part 
supposedly not working shows no such error.

Another bizarre part is this : the JSP document that you show, appears to be the login 
page, and it contains a <form> line like this :

 >         <form method="POST" action="<%= response.encodeURL("j_security_check")
%>">

Yet, looking at the log, it does not seem that there is ever a POST to that URL.

It would look like there is some confusion about the basic way in which form 
authentication is supposed to work.  That's also why your best bet may be to re-read the 
on-line documentation, and try first with one of the examples you will find in Google.
