problem with FORM based authentication

web.xml file

So basically request to /secured/ is handled by login.jsp before being passed to webcontroller servlet.

When I access localhost:8080/login/secured/ ,I am directed to login.jsp ,if I enter incorrect password I am directed to error.jsp.

error.jsp is:

so error page has nothing but link to login.jsp

But the problem is when I click on this link it looks for /secured/login.jsp not login.jsp and I get HTTP 404 ,page not found error.

So what should I use as URL here?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for reply,

but we can't use *.doas only needs authentication, all other .do actions run some business logic and don't need authentication
