I have a problem!
Now I need change authentication system in small project.
This project is created using STRUTS.

Is possible to do LOGIN form using FORM authentication?

Here is login page source:

<html:form action="/authorization" method="post" >
<DIV align="center">
<table name="detail" align="center">
<html:text property="user" styleId="user"></html:text>
<html assword property="password" />
<html:submit value="Login" styleClass="button"></html:submit>


if I change form action to j_security_check, after submit form go to j_security_check action in struts-config.xml.

That's not going to work.

My suggestion would be to remove the Struts tags and replace them with plain HTML tags. This applies to the login JSP only. All other pages need not be changed.[LIST]
