[jboss-user] [JBoss Portal] - Authenticate and redirect/forward to another page in the por

I have a request from a user of my portal to automatically log in the user into the portal and then take them to a particular page say p1.jsp .

The user will pass a param in the request "next_url=UserManager/UserListPortletWindow?action=2&operation=view_reg_code"

Since I use a DatabaseLoginModule I am able to to the authenticate the user by having his link point to

/portal/j_security_check?&j_username=xyz&j_password=y&next_url=above  string 

This works fine, the user is logged in, but the user is brought to the home page or default page specified in the web.xml. 

How do I redirect or forward the request to the next_url after successfully authenticating him. 

I tried to put in the following code in the commit() method of the DatabaseLoginModule  in a failed attempt to forward the request

  | public boolean commit() throws LoginException {
  |                boolean result = super.commit();
  |  		try{	
  | 			HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) PolicyContext.getContext(REQUEST_CONTEXT);
  | 			RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("/users");
  | 			HttpServletResponse response = (HttpServletResponse) PolicyContext.getContext("javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse");
  | 			rd.forward(request, response);
  | 		} catch (Exception e) {
  | 			log.error("Caught Exception while putting MyRackspaceUser in session!", e);
  | 		}		
  |        return result;
  | }

this fails because there is no such context as "javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse"

There does not seem to be a way to redirect the request.

Is there any way to redirect/forward the user to a specific page in the portal right after login.

Any help is highly appreciated. 
Thank you so much.
