J2EE FORM authentication (also affects pluggable authentication)





------- Additional Comments From olegk@apache.org  2004-01-14 16:14 -------
I personally do not see an elegant way of implementing the requested feature,
and what is more, do not think that J2EE authentication should be supported by
the stock version of HttpClient at all. 

Authentication logic in HttpClient has undergone several radical changes since
this feature request was filed. The monolithic HttpAuthenticator has been
restructured into smaller, AuthScheme interface implementing modules and
deprecated. Besides, form-based authentication is not a part of HTTP protocol
and should probably better be built on top of HttpClient, instead of being kind
of shoved in.

All that makes me kind of lean towards marking this bug as 'WONTFIX'. What do
you think, guys? Am I being too lazy and unimaginative?

Oleg
