In loading the admin GUI (http://localhost:4848/asadmin I'm getting the following exception:

Caused by: Unable to locate ViewBean: j_security_check

Build 22 on OS X 10.4.2. Any ideas?

I have seen this error in a couple situations.

1) If you visit the login screen and wait a long time (until your session times out), then type your username / password.

In this case the form submits to the URL containing j_security_check, but doesn't have information that is associated w/ the session to properly redirect.

2) If you (or your browser for some reason) goto the URL: http.../asadmin/adminGUI/j_security_check

In this case it attempt to load a page that doesn't exist and throws this exception.

In either case, going to the following URL should fix the problem:


If this isn't the case for you, perhaps it's something I haven't seen (maybe related to the Mac version / browser you are using??). If the URL above doesn't solve this problem, please let me know.
