Trouble using j_security form

After years of finding asnwers in these forums I thought it was about time to create an account^^

Anywho, I have a problem using login form against a tomcat server.
It redirects any user to the loginscreen as wanted but it always fails with he login(ie it ends up in the error page).
I believe the problem lies in the tomcat configuration but I dont really know where, and afetr hours of searching im kinda spent:S



I know its frowned to use the tomcat-users.xml but its more of a showcase website atm.

I was able to solve it, what I didnt know was that Eclipse was working against another tomcat-user.xml file in the workspace folder and not the one in the tomcat directory.
