Exclude servlet from security-constraint

I have security-constraint set up over my whole project, it's set up like this:


in web.xml. Then i have set up users and roles in jboss. Everything works ok, but I want to exclude one pattern from this constraint. The reason is that outside company need to have access to one of my servlets, and it's an automated process. So I send them URL to servlet and their system then uses it. I have created one more constraint for this servlet, with another password and user, then tried to access it this way:

but it doesn't work :/

Can anyone give me a hint how to solve it?

[edited to disable smilies and fix url tag]
