I am writing an application using Weblogic 6.1 with LDAP for security. I am also using FORM based authentication. So here is my problem: When a user logs in everything works fine. When a user mistypes a password less than three times, everything again works as expected. However when a user mistypes a password for the 4th tume the LDAP throws an exception saying that the maximum number of retry attempts exceeded. That is the behavior that I would like to get by the problem is that the exception is thrown in j_security_check and I have no way of catching it and dealing with it myself so I get the ugly Error 500 in browser. Any ideas?
The error page stuff in the web.xml file might be of some use here as it allows you to forward to a page when a specific error or exception occurs. (not sure if it works 100% in WebLogic though - we've certainly had some problems with 500's still appearing in the browser :roll: ) Simon
