hi
we are developing an application that should authenticate registered users
we use WIN2K/was AE 4.0.1/IBM SecureWay
the ldap seems to be ok, as we can look up entries from the admin console
when i try to request a protected resource on the site i am redirected to the login.jsp file as it is in the specification
now if i enter a wrong userID/pwd pair i am forwarded to the error.jsp file
almost perfect:
if i enter a valid user/pwd then either i am redirected to a directory list of the app!!
or nothing at all happens
the web.xml file is:

<code>

There were serveral issues with form login in the early versions of WS 4. Upgrade to WS 4.5 and try again. I know that 4.0.2 and 4.0.4 do NOT work.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
