Form Authentication of web.xml

When I am using form authentication of web.xml...Then there is this issue that I am facing...
I have return the code as follows :

<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/loginpage.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/loginpage.jsp?failed=true</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>

Now what happens is that when I refresh the page without filling in any details then also the page gets submitted and the errorMsg starts getting displayed. i.e. the form-error-page gets executed and the error message starts getting displayed. Any idea what is going wrong here?

Nothing' wrong here. I believe your validator validates the values present in the form and adds the error messages, hence, you are seeing the error messages.
