This Tomcat thing is driving me insane, i don't know what else to do after exhausting the google database looking for an answer.

I'm using Tomcat 6.0 with jre1.6.0 and mySQL 5.0.
Everything was installed fine and the systems seem to communicate fine.
I can execute java code in my JSP files with no problem.

When i want to access a protected page i'm brought to the login page i gave in the web.xml file. I put in the username and the password, and i'm brough back to the login page. No errors in the logs what's so ever.

Does anybody know why this is happening?

My WEB-INF/web.xml:

My DB:

My META-INF/context.xml:
