Remember Me Login Application In JSF

                          

We are developing remember me application in JSF which remembers user using cookies. You will learn how to use cookies in JSF application to remember an user.

This section gives you an application which facilitates for login. But basically this is a different type of login application in which, you will get a two text box labeled with the label like "User Name: " and another is the "Password: " these labels are denoting both text text boxes in which, one is for entering user name and another is for entering password. After entering user name and password you have to click on the "Login" button for submitting the user login form. This login form also holds an extra component i.e. the check box component which is for check to remember always on your system. If you check the check box component then the user name and password will be saved until you submit the login form after entering user name and the password without check the check box component.

You can learn by following the given example code that is given as ahead. In this example, we are using the procedure of cookies to save user name and password. When you open the login form again then the username and the password are seen as it is if you had checked the check box component. You can understand the application very efficiently by seeing the code of the example.

<jsp:forward page="login.jsf" />

Here is the code of the login.jsp:
