I am using Jdeveloper 10.1.2 to write a web application which allows users to login to it if their account (user name/password) exists within my "users" table in an Oracle database 10g. I have the database up and running and the "users" table already exist and is populated with some (usernames and passwords). My question/challenge is to provide the visitors of my site with a way for them to input their user name and password and if both user name and password matches the user name and password store in the database the visitor should be presented with my welcome page and if not they must be redirected to my error page. So my question is how can I get this authentication against the database working? I don't have much knowledge as far as how the authentication process goes so I am stuck at the very beginning!
I will greatly appreciate any body's help!
Thank you in advance.
