I'm using jboss-4.2.2GA and I'm using it the easiest way I can. I've simply created a directory named ROOT.war under the deploy directory and added a WEB-INF/web.xml file and voila. I also have some restricted pages that are protected by a login-config.
When I include an error-page element in the web.xml file:


I get an HTTP 401 error every time I try to access a protected page (the auth-method is BASIC).  To fix the problem, all I have to do is remove the <error-page> definition.

Here's the entire web.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"






I've searched and found that a number of people have complained about the same thing but I haven't been able to find a solution. Does one exist?
