login-config doesn't have mandatory sub-elements.
What is the use of it? Is it true having <login-config/> in DD will make the entire app. inaccessible by anybody?

Hi,

If you define a <security-constraint> element, you must define a <login-config> element, otherwise the container will throw a NullPointerException (in Tomcat 5.0.28).

I don't know if it depends of container implementation or if it is the default behaviour.

Regards,

Rodrigo
