Setting up Form based Authentication in GlassFish

I can't get form based authentication to work in JSF with Glassfish 3. I get this error(the base problem):
WARNING: Web login failed: Login failed: javax.security.auth.login.LoginException: Security Exception

For info, I also get:
WARNING: PWC4011: Unable to set request character encoding to UTF-8 from context /wapl, because request parameters have already been read, or ServletRequest.getReader() has already been called

Once in a while I also get:
WARNING: !!!!! Cannot create Update Center Image for C:\Program Files\glassfish-3.0.1\glassfish\..
INFO: Cannot create update center Image for C:\Program Files\glassfish-3.0.1; Update Center functionality will not be available in Admin Console
WARNING: Error in getting update component list, cannot get image.
INFO: Update Component count = -1


I have checked "Default Principal to Mapping" under Configuration -> Security.
The jdbc resource and the connection pool works fine, I have been using them earlier with no problem before trying to set up authentication. The realm setup is like this:

Name: waplj_realm
Class name: com.sun.enterprise.security.auth.realm.jdbc.JDBCRealm
JAAS Context: jdbcRealm
JNDI: jdbc/waplj_prosjekt
User Table: bruker
User Name Column: brukernavn
Password Column: passord
Group Table: rolle
Group Name Column: rolle
Database User: waplj
Database pasword: passord
Digest Algorithm: none

I have tried to find where other places to set clear text passwords without encryption, but I have not found any.

Seems I should not have used char in the database table for username, role and password. I changed it to varchar, it solved the problem.
