I am new to this JSP world. While i am looking at login.jsp page, I found j_security_check for form action parameter. But i failed to find the j_security_check related code. I have gone through some documents there i found it is the techinque used to protect the webpages. Can any body explain regarding this. How authentication process will be? thanks gangadhar
j_security_check is the default name for container authentication. By using j_security_check you are asking your web application server (JBoss, Tomcat, WebSphere ..) to use their internally written process to perform the validation of the j_username and j_password passed to it. (Based on your web.xml and container specific auth modules).
"bbalmer", We're really glad that you are here with us in the JSP forum, and there aren't many rules you'll have to worry about, but one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change your display name to match it. In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. Thanks! bear JSP Forum Bartender
