Subject Httpclient + HTTPS + Proxy + BASIC Authentication
Date Wed, 24 Mar 2004 11:50:24 GMT

I have read the notes on the bug in Httpclient V2.0 to do with 
using Basic Authentication with a HTTPS Url through a proxy. 

The workaround is to use preemptive authentication. 

Are the credentials i.e. username, password sent unencrypted to the 
server when Preemptive Authentication is used even through the URL is 
a https URL.
