Hi All,
I'm new to jsf and not sure if this is the correct place for this problem.
I'm trying to get the following login.xhtml working and get a null pointer within my LoginBean on calling
RequestDispatcher dispatcher = ((ServletRequest) context.getRequest()).getRequestDispatcher("/j_spring_security_check");


Prob simple for you guys, but just can see this one.

Can you put your applicationContext-secure.xml (your spring security xml file) and web.xml content here? Those are the main configuration files so was just asking if you can.

Hello Mat,

Were you able to resolve the null pointer exception?I am getting the same error.

Please tell the solution.
