Subject [httpclient] duplicate 401 when using preemptive authentication
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2005 14:27:01 GMT


I'm using preemptive authentication for my BASIC HTTP web service client 
using commons-httpclient. When my credentials expires (server response 
401) httpclient runs a "chalenge" and send a second request to server. 
This creates duplicates security logs in my server.

I've submited issue about this, but 
I'm searching for a workaround. How can I configure httpclient 
authentication processing to skip chalenge ?
