Hi,
In WAS 5, I use form-based authentication with LDAP. When you access the secured pages, WAS dispatches you to the login page configured in web.xml. After filling in the user name and password and passing the authentication, WAS automatically dispatches you to the page you want to access. I know in Weblogic, one session variable called “_wl_formauth_url” is used to keep the URL info you want to access by Weblogic, but what is session variable name used by WAS? I can not find it anywhere.
Thanks,
Adam

Hi,
If WAS authenticates the user successfully, the originally requested resource is displayed. I think WAS must keep the url for the originally requested resource as a session variable. Any onw knowes which variable is used by WAS?
Thanks,
Adam
