error page problem

Hi All,
I am trying out an example in which there is a login page. If the username is invalid then an error page is displayed else the home page of the company is displayed.
But for me if I enter the invalid user name I am getting an error "404" saying that the login-error.jsp is not available.
If I enter the valid user name I am getting an error "400" which states that
"message: Invalid direct reference to form login page
description: The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect (Invalid direct reference to form login page)."
I can access the login-error.jsp directly (I mean through direct URL ).
can any one help me to find out what is the error.
The login.jsp and login-error.jsp are in admin directory.
The servlet which is called is under the classes directory.
thanks in advance..

any chance of seeing the code?

There are 10 types of people in this world - those who understand binary and those who don't.
I agree. Here's the link:
