cannot redirect to secure page

I use Oracle JDeveloper to write servlets & JSP. I made subdirectory secure authorized and when I directly try to connect to servlet it tells me I am not authorized. That's OK.
But I want to come to this servlet from SecurePage.jsp. PLEASE look at the code below. PLEASE PLEASE tell me if I should post in another content.
I've added into web.xml:***
<!-- <user-data-constraint>
</user-data-constraint> -->
and my SecurePage.jsp is:***
<form action="j_security_check" method="POST">
User: <input name="j_username" type="text" />
is in love with a password: <input name="j_password" type="password" />
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="Go to secure page" />

The problem is SecurePage.jsp it never redirects to servlet.
What can be wrong? What can I do?

Thanks in advance!!

I think you're going to have more luck getting help in a different forum... this doesn't sound like an Oracle specific issue but more a servlet configuration issue.

I would pm Jeanne and ask her to move this to a forum where you can get more help.
