Hi all

I make use the Tomcat Form Login
- username = j_username
- password = j_password
- form action = j_security_check

I know that login failure page can be managed by web.xml login-module
But ,how can I manage the login success page configuration?

Thanks/Glogin

The default is the index.jsp/index.html etc. Tomcat should know which resource you tried to access and will redirect you there. For example if you have a /secure/mypage.jsp and you try to access this page without first logging in then you should see the login authentication page. Once you successfully log in Tomcat should reidrect you to the /secure/mypage.jsp.

I think you mean login.html will be the page with the login form. Or not?

hi

it need not be a html with the form

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<realm-name>Your realm ....</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/loginServlet</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/loginServlet?STATUS=ERROR</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

in LoginServlet have attribute STATUS and LOGIN_TYPE

you can get the parameter

get the STATUS and LOGIN_TYPE fromt he request parameter.

Based on this you can control the flow.

<form-login-page>/loginServlet</form-login-page>

is actually a sucess url

It can be anything. If it is a servlet or another JSP page the flow can be directed into another page after successful login.
