Returning to The Page Triggering Login

When using declarative security of web container with FORM authentication type, then requesting a protected page will cause my login FORM automatically be displayed by the container. Upon successful login, the container will AUTOMATICALLY return me to the page triggering the login. That is a good feature I want to keep.

But, in Struts, how do we achieve the automatic returning to the triggering page effect?

Form-based authentication works the same with or without Struts. You will not need to make any changes.
