How does the request understand, which server to go to , when we have provided ACTION="j_security_check" ? Dont we need server name to send a rewuest to ? If username and password are stored in database, connection to database is taken care of by j_security_check ? If not, the how is security check performed in that case ?
How does redirection to another webpage take place , when we are using j_security_check ?
This is what I know - j_security_check is a kind of target built into a web application container. So, how it's actually implemented is container specific. However, the URL that causes the login page to be invoked is probably stored somewhere, and then the login is successful, the user is redirected to the stored URL.

Yes exactly, once you configure your jaas authentication this url will be active.
