Hi all. I have a Login action that gets intercepted by non other than LoginInterceptor. In the interceptor the username and password are checked. I can even print them in the logs to see that they are really there.

The interceptor returns
return invocation.invoke();

Then in the Login action username, password and HttpServletRequest are all null. I have setters for each. I am implementing ServletRequestAware.

Worst of all this was all working yesterday. This happened once before but then started working. Which all means I have no clue what I did or how to fix this.
