Subject Tomcat behind Apache and security-constraint
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 16:25:08 GMT
I have a very simple web application
(JSP<> based),
deployed on Tomcat webapps directory with a security constraint in order to
protect an internal directory. Tomcat (7.0.12) is running behind Apache
(2.2.17) web server (httpd).

If I try to access to some file within internal directory, directly in
Tomcat (*http://localhost:8080/...*), username and password are required,
and I can reach the file (if username and password are wright). That's

But, *if I try to access the same file within internal directory, through
Apache web server* (*http://localhost/...*), username and password are
required, but *a blank page is displayed on Firefox navigator*.
(If I delete the security constraint, the web application works fine.)

Do you have any idea?

I was searching in Google in order to solve this problem, but nothing was

Thank you, in advance.
