Hello all,
I'd like to convert my working form-based login page to use struts' html
form taglib. I get the following Exception when trying to load login.jsp:

"javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot retrieve mapping for action /j_security_check"

This code works:

<form name="login" action="j_security_check" method="POST">
  <table border="3" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" align="center">
  <tr>
    <th align="right">Username:</th>
    <td><input type="text" name="j_username" size="20"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <th align="right">Password:</th>
    <td><input type="password" name="j_password" size="20"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr align="center">
    <td colspan="2"><input type="submit" value="Login"></td>
  </tr>
  </table>
</form>

This does not:

<html:form action="j_security_check" focus="j_username">
  <table border="3" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" align="center">
  <tr>
    <th align="right">Username:</th>
    <td><html:text property="j_username"/></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <th align="right">Password:</th>
    <td><html:password property="j_password"/></td>
  </tr>
  <tr align="center">
    <td colspan="2"><html:submit>Login</html:submit></td>
  </tr>
  </table>
</html:form>

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. You may not require to add j_security_check in struts-config.xml. The Container takes cares of it. Please correct me if I am wrong.

How about?

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/login.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/login.jsp</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

I don't know the solution to convert your Form Login to Struts.   But it is obvious that Struts is trying to locate the action 'j_security_check' in the struts-config.xml file before container capture 'j_security_check'.   You need to find a way to let Struts ignore this so that the container can capture your login request.  Try to remove any Struts tags in your login jsp to see if it OK.
