I am following Form based authentication. I have a login page. I have specified the security constraints in the web.xml.

I would like to know after the execution of login where will the controller go to?? will it go the controller servlet, followed by an action class??

For any typical event (such as create customer)---the following has been the flow:
controller servlet--> createAction-->createUserBD (business delegate) --> customerManagerEJB --> customerDAO;

Now in case of login..
After the execution of login (authentication is by form based authentication ) where will the controll go to?
My requirement is to store the logged in userID details in Stateful Session bean. how will the flow look like?

Hi Veena,

I think It should goto the controller.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
