Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4815) Invalid login creds will send many requests to server
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 19:55:12 GMT


Christian Schneider commented on CXF-4815:

Very nice can I help with it in any way? Would setting the http.maxRedirects to another value
be a workaround?

> 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).
