As per my understanding ony BASIC aunthentication should have realm-name tag

see the following entries in web.xml . are these correct or not.


<login-config>
<auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
<realm-name>User Auth</realm-name>
</login-config>


<login-config>
<auth-method>DIGEST</auth-method>
<realm-name>User Auth</realm-name>
</login-config>

<login-config>
<auth-method>CLIENT-CERT</auth-method>
<realm-name>User Auth</realm-name>
</login-config>

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<realm-name>User Auth</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>login.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>error.jsp</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

<realm-name> is optional. If it's present then it's displayed in the dialog box asking for the credentials.

Yes. Of course, if there's no dialog box (like for form and client-cert auth), then it doesn't get displayed.
