Subject: form based container auth and filters 


 Hi,
 
 Can someone explain why filters were called on presenting a form based
 login page in tomcat 4, but they are not called in tomcat 5?
 

Tomcat 4 used a redirect to the login page, and Tomcat 5 uses a forward.

 Is consideration being given to making this a configurable feature?
 

It is configurable.  Go read the 2.4 Servlet spec.

 Thanks
 Martin
