I am using form based authentication for my application. I have a page viewSummary.htnl in a folder called "secure". To access this page users have to logon. but whn i click on a link for the viewSummary page. It does not take me to the login page....it sends me directly to the viewSummary.html

my login-config is as follows:



Also if i run my login page directly and put in username and password...i get a ServletNotFoundException : FormLoginServlet
the stack trace is as follows:


Please help me....been at it since the last 2 days

Thanks in advance

That looks suspiciously like a CLASSPATH problem or a similar issue.

I'm moving this to the IBM/Websphere forum, but I have to ask: which version are you using? I didn't try WAS 5, but in 4 (from memory) form based authentication only worked in 4.0.3 and 4.0.5 It was broken in other versions.
