basic security "Configuration error"

Cameron Taggart
I'm launching my application from Eclipse using JettyLauncher and
Jetty 5.1.10.  When I try to add basic authentication to "index.html",
I just get a HTTP 500 error stating "Configuration Error".  There are
no warning or errors reported from Jetty on the server side that I
have seen.

Here is my jetty config file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Mort Bay Consulting//DTD Configure//EN"

<Configure class="org.mortbay.jetty.Server">

  <Call name="addListener">
      <New class="org.mortbay.http.SocketListener">
        <Set name="Port"><SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="80"/></Set>

  <Call name="addRealm">
      <New class="org.mortbay.http.HashUserRealm">
        <Arg>Jetty Demo Realm</Arg>
        <Arg><SystemProperty name="jetty.home"

  <Call name="addWebApplication">
    <Set name="extractWAR">false</Set>


Here are the security portions of my web.xml:

    <realm-name>MetTrack 7 Authentication</realm-name>


Any ideas on how I can get basic authentication working?  How do I see
what the configuration error actually is (more details)?
