Can someone please help me figure out what is wrong with the configuration below
I keep getting "HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied" when I run the application.

I'm using netbeans 6.7.1 with tomcat.

this is my web.xml




this is my tomcat-users.xml file




I was expecting a log in screen to pop up when ever the application is run.

All 3 files index.jsp, index.html and loginerror.html are outside the WEB-INF directory

thanks

In specification it is written

The realm-name indicates the realm name to use in HTTP BASIC authentication.



I don't know whether you can use realm name in case of FORM based authentication.

I took out the realm name from "<login-config>" and it is still not working.
