In a form-based login scenario, the < form-login-page > login.jsp < /form-login-page > defined in web.xml is displayed.
If the AUTHENTICATION failed, then < form-error-page > error.jsp < form-error-page > is sent to the client.
But what occurs is the authentication is ok but the AUTHORIZATION fails ? Is the same error.jsp page displayed ?
I can't see something about that in the Servlet Spec (2.2)
