Hm, correct me if I'm wrong as we never used HTTP authentication with
If a user requests a URI from the web server which is protected, the web
(or the browser) prompts for the authentication information. Only if the
user is authenticated this request is forwarded to the servlet engine.
Is this correct?

If this is so, the servlet engine can - without using a form - use the
action, get the information from the web server (if possible) and log the
into sunRise.

Does this make sense?
