I found there was a contradiction in servlet spec(pdf),
at p313: <!ELEMENT security-role-ref (description?, role-name, role-link)>
at p336: <!ELEMENT security-role-ref (description?, role-name, role-link?)>

Wondering whether role-link is required or not in security-role-ref?

The <role-link> is optional.
