Subject Re: [Axis v1.3] conf option to enable HTTP Basic auth
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2006 12:02:26 GMT
Hello Artur,

On the client side you do: (from JAX-RPC1.1 spec)

StockQuoteProvider_Stub sqp = // ... get to the stub;
sqp._setProperty(Stub.USERNAME_PROPERTY, "<username>");
sqp._setProperty(Stub.PASSWORD_PROPERTY, "<password>");
float quote = sqp.getLastTradePrice("ACME");

In a way it was good that you did, I was too busy when I got the first 
one this afternoon and deleted it :)
