Hi,
I have an doubt when more than one <url-pattern> elements overlap.
If a <secutiry-constraint> element has no <auth-constraint> element, everyone can accesses the resource.

If a <secutiry-constraint> element has a empty <auth-constraint> element,
no one can accesses the resource.

But if both exits ? What will happen ?
Here�s a snippet.

As I know empty one - <auth-constraint/> is ALWAYS WIN.

Serghei is right. In this case, nobody can access the resource!

Refer HF book, Chap 12, page: 639 (Dueling <auth-constraint> elemets table)

You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
