I've just downloaded Acegi and in the root directory there are two war files; acegi-security-sample-tutorial and acegi-security-sample-contacts-filter. If you extract either one, there is a web.xml in the WEB-INF directory.
I am getting there. I think I have most the pieces. The project builds and when I go to the login page I am seeing the hashed http address with the jsessionid.
I am getting 404 errors now so I need to figure out why the pages are not being picked up by the server. I imagine i has something to do with the daoAuthenticationProvider class not being implemented yet. I may try that inmemory one for testing.
Personally, I would take the acegi-security-sample-tutorial and start from there. This example probably contains most things you want and can be easily customized. It also stops the annoying, "why isn't this working" problems.
Not a problem, glad you got it work. I find the tutorial example to be a good starting point. Like you say, you don't start a new project every day so it does take some time to get your head round it all. Starting a project from scratch isn't fun! Why bother just take the sample and hack it into something you want. Good luck with it all!
