<role-name>Member<role-name>

My doubt is who is given access?


Thanks in advance.

Hi,
when any role name is combined with an empty <auth-constraint/> tag, no one is given access.
So , in your case no one (not even Member) can access it.
Thanks

This is very clearly explained in the Head First in the security chapters.

If the same url (resource) are constrained, then only no one will be able to access the constrained resource..
