Maybe some exceptions is thrown. And that is causing for the else condition to be overlooked.
Check if any exception is thrown. Better to have the redirect code after the local try-catch for authenticating the user

When a non-business exception is thrown, it is better to route to a common System Error page.
You can specify the sysError.jsp like this :
<%@ page errorPage="sysError.jsp" %>
And in sysError.jsp have
<%@ page isErrorPage="true" %>

From the complete stack trace were you able to locate the line that causes the exception. It is not so obvious from your and the partial stack trace
