I was trying to secure one servlet and I have a login.jsp for collecting the user name and password from the user. I made the changes in the web.xml and I don�t know how to create users on the server (test server, if possible thru WSAD5.1) and turn the security on. I am posting the relevant portion of my web.xml. Somebody please help.
Thanks in advance.

The process of creating users, and of connecting them to roles is not standardized. You'll have to consult the documentation of your servlet container for this.

In case of Tomcat , releams take care of the actual authentication.The default is memory relam .For this the username , password , roles are stored in tomcat-user.xml located under /conf directory.Modify the xml to create users.

As this question is really about how to set up WebSphere, I'll transfer it over to the WebSphere forum.
