Ok. I have 3 jsp pages - login.jsp, a.jsp and b.jsp

The user needs to authenticate himself (via login.jsp) before accessing a.jsp and b.jsp.

Currently if i goto a.faces or b.faces (without logging in) i am presented with the page (populated with the default values for the backing bean). Instead, I would like to redirect the user to the login page.

Some ways in which you could handle this.

1] First you could write a Servlet filter which would check if the user is already logged in. If not take the user to the login page.

2] The other option would be to use the JSF Navigation Handler mechanism.

An example is at this site.
