I am trying to implement form-based authentication in a JBOSS 3.2.3/ Embedded Tomcat/ Firebird database environment. I have tested that I can login into Firebird using isql for the user id/ password combination that I have. It seems to go past any jdbc connection errors (no stack/ failures). However, Tomcat chokes with a "HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied" message.
My login-config.xml has the following entries:
<authentication>
<login-module code="org.jboss.security.auth.spi.DatabaseServerLoginModule"
flag="required">
<module-option name="dsJndiName">java:/IAL-AUTH-DS</module-option>
<module-option name="principalsQuery">select pr_password from principals where principal_id=?</module-option>
<module-option name="rolesQuery">select user_role, role_group from roles where principal_id=?</module-option>
</login-module>
</authentication>
My firebird..-xa-ds.xml has

<connection-factories>
<tx-connection-factory>
<jndi-name>IAL-AUTH-DS</jndi-name>
<xa-transaction/>
<adapter-display-name>Firebird Database Connector</adapter-display-name>
<config-property name="Database" type="java.lang.String">localhost/3050:/home2/niprdev/db/niprdev_auth.GDB</config-property>
<user-name>test</user-name>
<password>test</password>
<!--additional properties. only use one way of setting tx isolation, please
<config-property name="TransactionIsolation"></config-property>
<config-property name="TransactionIsolationName">TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED</config-property>
<config-property name="BlobBufferLength"></config-property>
<config-property name="Encoding">UNICODE_FSS</config-property>
-->
<min-pool-size>0</min-pool-size>
<max-pool-size>50</max-pool-size>
</tx-connection-factory>
</connection-factories>
My web.xml has:
<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>Restricted</web-resource-name>
<description>Declarative security</description>
<url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>POST</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>ial</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
<user-data-constraint>
<description>No descrp</description>
<transport-guarantee>NONE</transport-guarantee>
</user-data-constraint>
</security-constraint>
<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<realm-name>ial</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/login.jsp</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/error.htm</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>
<security-role>
<role-name>ial</role-name>
</security-role>
My jboss-web.xml defines the application security domain JNDI namespace as:
<jboss-web>
<context-root>/ial/web-app</context-root>
<!-- Uncomment this element to add security for the application -->
<security-domain>java:/jaas/ial</security-domain>
</jboss-web>
I cant see why it does not connect completely. There is no JDBC error thrown.
Any suggestions? Help!

One more query. Why does it route me to an access denied rather than the login error page?

When I was fighting a simular problem, it was recommended that I add

to my log4j.xml in order to get more details about what is going on.
BTW I noticed that your <security-domain> and <context-root> were out of order according to the DTD.
