Hi,

My Login.jsp




jboss-web.xml in WAR's WEB-INF contains:

Also,
In this example "adb" is a domain that has been declared in $JBoss/server/default/conf/login-config.xml

Where does the 'j_security_check' servlet redirect to after it has finished? Where has it been defined?

It redirects to the page that cause the login.jsp page to be displayed. I think it redirects to the home page if there is no previous page. This mechanism lets you click on a URL to a secured page, at which point you are asked to log in, after which you are sent to the page you originally requested.
