Subject Re: NTLM Support?

You might be able to use something like:
to do the ntlm stuff.  See:

CXF just uses the JDK HTTPUrlConnection so it should work.   

That said, you MIGHT need to configure the CXF client to turn off the 
chunking, turn on the redirect support, etc... so that it doesn't try to 
stream the data.   (the handshakes don't allow the streaming)

If this DOES work, please let me know.  :-)
