how to set up web application authentication

Hi,
we are trying to provide webmethods basic authentication to our web application. I have configured in my web application’s web.xml file in the following way.

BASIC
webMethods

Still i am not getting webMethod’s browser based screen to prompt for username and password. Any help would be appreciated.

Is your web application in DSP ? have you thought baout using .access file security ?

Thanks for your reply. My web application in jsp. Can i provide the .access security for my jsps? Basically what i want is webmethods prompt for authentication when i invoke my jsp. Hope you got clarified now.

I suppose your web application is a part of a packge. Then mention the wm acl name in the tag in the web.xml file
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>ACL Name</role-name>

</auth-constraint>

Give the acl info in the web.xml file
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>RbGKVSupport</role-name>

</auth-constraint>

Apart from the above,make sure your Invoked Service Execute ACL is not set as Anonymous…
