I am not able to get Security working in Websphere 5.1.2. Please help.

When I try to add <login-config></login-config> to DD. I get the following error

The content of element type "web-app" must match "(icon?,display-name?,description?,distributable?,context-param*,filter*,filter-mapping*,listener*,servlet*,servlet-mapping*,session-config?,mime-mapping*,
welcome-file-list?,error-page*,taglib*,resource-env-ref*,resource-ref*,security-constraint*,login-config?,security-role*,env-entry*,ejb-ref*,ejb-local-ref*)".

My DD Doc type is as below.

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd">

[EDIT - broke long line]

Security in Websphere is a bit Websphere-specific so I am moving this to the IBM/Websphere forum.

That error message tells you two things:

1. You can only have at most one login-config element.

2. It has to be in the correct order with respect to the other elements.
The message tells you exactly what that order is.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
