Hi,
   I need to use PlatformUser.authenticate method to authenticate users in RACF via a web page.  I need to display an error message when the userid or password is incorrect, and I also need to re-direct them to a different page when their password has expired.  I am trying to display the error codes from
PlatformReturned with the following simple code that I am using for testing:

String UserID = request.getParameter("UserID").trim().toUpperCase();
String Password = request.getParameter("PSWD").trim().toUpperCase();

PlatformReturned RACF_results = PlatformUser.authenticate(UserID, Password);
if (RACF_results == null) { out.println("Authentication successful"); }
else { out.println("RACF error = " + PlatformReturned.errno); }

but, I get the following error on the last line of code:

Can't make a static reference to nonstatic variable errno in class
com.ibm.os390.security.PlatformReturned.

Ultimately I just want to be able to determine if the userid or password is invalid and display a message, and redirect to a different page if the password has expired. Obviously I am going about this wrong and need help.

Thanks!

I don't know anything about   com.ibm.os390.security.PlatformReturned .
But, from the error message and the code you posted I will venture a guess.

>if (RACF_results == null) { out.println("Authentication successful"); }
Is that right ?  If success, then null is returned ?  So, if failure an object is returned ?
If, that is right then you should try  
else { out.println("RACF error = " + RACF_results.errno); }
