Subject [HttpClient] Partial support for NTLM in 4.0
Date Sun, 11 May 2008 18:30:25 GMT

I added partial support for NTLM authentication to the SVN trunk. The
NTLM will not work out of the box, though. The users will have to
provide a concrete implementation of the interface below by themselves
in order to get NTLM working: 


I also put together a document that explains why we cannot support NTLM
out of the box and how to build an implementation of the NTLMEngine
based on the JCIFS library


Please review and let me know what you think. I would also really
appreciate if someone who speaks English natively could proof-read my

I personally think this is as good as it gets given the legal
constraints. This still enables us to accept the code developed by Cathy
and simply plug it in at a later stage provided the legal aspects of
shipping a full-blown NTLM engine implementation can be worked out to
the satisfaction of ASF lawyers.

If I hear no complaints I'll also put the NTLM support document on the
project web site and move NTLM FAQ from Wiki.
