when you want to deploy a web application that use a FORM login page you have to supply the form tag with "action=j_security_check" and both properties names for the username and password must be "name=j_username" and "name=j_password"..my point is that this type of authentication uses the file Realm of the web container which means i have to edit the realm file with an editor and add users in it(tomcat-users.xml is an example or using the deployment tool of the server)..so this nonsense if i have a website that register members..i can store users info using JNDI with LDAP but..how to map the authentication process to the LDAP entrie attributes?...how i can say that j_username in the FORM authentication page will be mapped to "cn" attribute in ldap?and also how to map j_passwaord to ldap attribute "userPassword"?
