hi,
I can access my URL in both http and https .
1) http://myURL.com
2) https://myURL.com:4444

But I want this logic to be contained in Web.xml where in only for some resource , I need to use https. I put the following in Web.xml ...But it is not working . As soons as i hit welcome.jsp , IE is trying to download the page to my Harddrive.( ???) .

following is code in web.xml
========
<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>
test
</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/Welcome.jsp</url-pattern>
</web-resource-collection>
<user-data-constraint>
<transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
</user-data-constraint>
</security-constraint>
====

what is wrong with this code ?

PLUS I cannot access the site as https://myURL.com with out port number . I always have to append 4444 . Is there any way to autmatically add the port .


Thanks
