Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-4815) Invalid login creds will send many requests to server
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 18:19:13 GMT
Daniel Kulp created CXF-4815:

             Summary: Invalid login creds will send many requests to server
                 Key: CXF-4815
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Transports
    Affects Versions: 2.7.3, 2.6.6, 2.5.9
            Reporter: Daniel Kulp
            Assignee: Daniel Kulp
             Fix For: 2.7.4, 2.6.7, 2.5.10

If you set authorizations stuff in the HTTPConduit with a wrong password or username and issue
a GET, 20 requests are sent to the server.  For non-streaming connections (like GET), for
the 401 response, the HttpURLConnection calls the Authenticator to get auth information. 
We create a new PasswordAuthentication object and return it each time.  However, the HttpURLConnection
does not compare that returned value with the previous value and will keep trying until it
hits the http.maxRedirects value (default is 20).
