Target login page after timeout

I'm using form based authentication like so:

<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/index.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/index.jsp</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>

I've also go my webapp in an HTML frameset.

The problem I'm having is occurs when I have a session timeout; I need the login page to target the top level frameset otherwise I get the login page in each frame of the frameset. Yikes!

Anyone know a way to do this?

I doubt this is going to work:
<form-login-page>/index.jsp target=_top</form-login-page>

Thanks,

Drew

Hi,
May be couple of suggestions(?)

1. Create servlet filter and configured such that all the request go thru it, if session is new then redirect to parent Frame jsp, which contains login page.

2. Try to use tiles layouts (http://struts.apache.org/userGuide/dev_tiles.html). It is very flexible and amazing. I strognly suggest you to look into this. Frames are known for problems when you start adding server side code.

3. You can create 'public' directory where you can keep Frame jsp,which contains login page.
