Subject Form Authentication
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 17:55:51 GMT
This is driving me crazy!  I have configured from authentication in my
web.xml with a number of security constraints.  None of the constraints map
to any CSS files.  However, when I bring up the application the CSS files
are hitting the authentication.  Since my form has styling this is a
problem of the chicken-and-egg sort since the CSS files are not
authenticated yet.

On top of that, when I do successfully authenticate, the CSS file is the
one that has been saved by the authenticator and is the one that is
returned so the browser just brings up the raw CSS file.

Any thoughts?  Ideas?

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that
cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong
goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair
