Realm from authentication challenge unavailable

           Summary: Realm from authentication challenge unavailable
           Product: Commons
           Version: 2.0 Alpha 2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: HttpClient
        AssignedTo: commons-httpclient-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: adrian@ephox.com


There is currently no way to extract the authentication realm from HttpClient 
except to extract the authentication challenge header and parse it manually.

Either the realm needs to be available to the client or a method in 
Authenticator should extract the realm from a given authentication header.

The same problems occurs with determining which type of authentication is 
being used and what other options there are (basic, digest, NTLM, others).
