Hi,
I am trying to programatically use j_security_check to login users to the system automatically without them having to type in anything.
Problem I'm having is that despite setting a cookie named
WASReqURL
with the URI of the protected page I want to get to, I'm not able to get to the page. Most of the time, I'm getting a blank page with the URL ending with j_security_check.
LTPAToken
is being generated correctly as I'm able to access the page if I type it in manually after that.
Here's some code I use in my servlet.. question I have is what am I missing?

Any kind of help or feedback is greatly appreciated.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
