As we all know that in in J2EE we can set acls also to servlets , jsps. And the credentials is supplied by browser in case of web based application. And that is only possible if we use authentication process of browser, so that browser will pop up authentication dialog box for particular realm. But if I'm using a formbased authentication(as it is for comfortable for end users), how can I pass the credentials and how can maintain the credentials over the entire session so that whenver web server asks for the authentications for authorizng the user to access the servlet or jsp, the credentials will be supplied. So that browser won't pop up dialog box.
One more point, if cetificate based authentication is being used, how to use for the realms.
Pls do give your suggestion.
