             Summary: JAASLoginInterceptor: Return proper unauthorized response when JAAS
login with basic auth fails
                 Key: CXF-6206
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6206
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core, Transports
            Reporter: Christian Schneider
            Assignee: Christian Schneider
             Fix For: 3.1.0


Currently we return a Fault with a AuthenticationException when JAAS login fails.

The proper response would be a 401 status with a suitable WWW-Authenticate header.

I experimented with turning the AuthenticationException into a 401 response in the http transport.
Not sure where to take auth type and realm from though. I am also not sure how to distinguish
basic auth from WSS Security UsernameToken. As in the second case 401 is probably not correct.
