You do not tell us what form of authentication you are using:
"HTTP-Authentication" or "Cookie-Authentication".

For "HTTP-Authentication", you raise an "Unauthorized" exception
to get the browsers login dialog.

For cookie authentication, you make a redirect to the
"login" form (you may want to provide more information such
that you can come back after successful login).
