i would like to know first how to do authentication.

Hi you can do the authentication 4 types:-
oHTTP Basic authentication ( BASIC )
oHTTP Digest authentication (DIGEST)
oHTTPS Client authentication (CLIENT-CERT)
oHTTP FORM-based authentication (FORM)


<form method="POST" action="j_security_check">
<input type="text" name="j_username">
<input type="password" name="j_password">
<input type="submit" value="OK">
</form>

entry in web.xml:-

<web-app>
...
<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<!--realm-name not required for FORM based authentication -->
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/formlogin.html</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/formerror.html</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>
...
<web-app>

thanks,
ram

In most cases you don't need to fiddle around with the response in your own code. If you set things up properly -like Ramu hints at- and then tell the container where to look for your user information (e.g. for Tomcat that's described here), then you should be all set.

can i get some answers for this question???


As an aside, it would have been polite to put a "please" in this sentence, instead of adding three question marks.
