Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4815) Invalid login creds will send many requests to server
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 16:31:14 GMT


Christian Schneider commented on CXF-4815:

This does not fully solve the problem. The authenticator now returns username/password one
time and null on the next call. This makes HttpUrlConnection do 2 requests instead of 20 but
it should be only one.

After talking to Dan we agreed that CXFAuthenticator should always return null in case of
basic or digest auth as we are handling this in the HttpConduit already. A first test in Syncope
shows that this seems to fix the issue. I will prepare a fix for this.

> 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).
