The Authentication window doesnot appear when i access following url http://localhost:8080/app3/welcome.jsp When i use above url it directly shows welcome.jsp page without going on Authentication window. My webApplication app3 is stored under C:\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\ My web.xml file is as follows
You must replace the line <url-pattern>/app3/welcome.jsp</url-pattern> with <url-pattern>/welcome.jsp</url-pattern>. For sure it will work.
The <url-pattern> must be relative to the root of the application, so if you use the url pattern/app3/welcome.jsp you are saying to container you want to constraint the resource at <a href="http://localhost:8080/app3/<b rel="nofollow">app3/welcome.jsp</b>" target="_blank">http://localhost:8080/app3/app3/welcome.jsp and not at <a href="http://localhost:8080/app3<b rel="nofollow">/welcome.jsp</b>" target="_blank">http://localhost:8080/app3/welcome.jsp as you would expected.
Did you get the point ?
Oh ! Don't forget to restart your web application in order to changes in DD have effect. [ October 26, 2006: Message edited by: Edisandro Bessa ]

Now there is another problem when i run above url on window the authentication window appears but when i run above url on Mozilla browser the authentication window doesnot appears and welcome.jsp page is displayed directly.
