    Java EE 6 Tutorial sample: Form-Based Authentication


      I'm trying to get the form based authentication example from the Java EE 6 Tutorial to work with Internet Explorer 8: http://download.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/bncbx.html#bnccb

      This sample application (examples/security/hello1_formauth) works just fine with Chrome, but when I open the URL with IE, I get the usual unsigned SSL certificate warning. I continue but then see a browser popup with the message "Unable to download hello1_formauth/ from localhost". Why is the browser trying to download instead of just render the login page?

      Any help appreciated.

      Thank you.
