This is my web.xml DD

This is my tomcat-users.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <tomcat-users>
<role rolename="manager" />
<role rolename="admin" />
<user username="admin" password="" roles="admin,manager" />
</tomcat-users>



Instead of asking for login when trying to access "localhost:8080/beerv1/form.html" , it is allowing me to access it without asking for user id and password. What is the problem?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Bipra,

There are a couple of things that you have to check and correct:

  • What is the context-root of your application? The URL http://localhost:8080/beerv1/form.html suggests that it is beerv1, do you have a directory /beerv1 under your root?
  • You are using a GET request when requesting http://localhost:8080/beerv1/form.html, and only POST is restricted
  • There is a typo: securtiy-constraint should be security-constraint
  • Remove the whole <user-data-constraint> otherwise you need to setup a HTTPS port in Tomcat to get things working
  • Are there errors when starting-up?


  • Regards,
    Frits

    Hello Frits,

    Thanks for your response.beerv1 is the context root of my application and there is no directory with beerv1 under beerv1(i.e context root of my app). In my web.xm , whenl I am giving
    <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> then the browser asks for user name and password when trying to access form.html(localhost:8080/beerv1/form.html) but when I am giving <url-pattern>/beerv1/*</url-pattern> it does not prompts for user name and password. the page form.html is directly inside the context root i.e beerv1. What is causing this?

    Regards,
    Bipra De.

    The URL-pattern is always from the context-root, so in this case
    /* means every URL starting with http://localhost:8080/beerv1/
    /beerv1/* means every URL starting with http://localhost:8080/beerv1/beerv1/

    Just to confirm: create a beerv1 directory under your context-root dir and place the form.html there and see that it will ask for a username and password if you use the following URL http://localhost:8080/beerv1/beerv1/form.html

    Regards,
    Frits
