Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1394) Native windows Negotiate/NTLM via JNA
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 09:40:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13753467#comment-13753467

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1394:

I feel somewhat uneasy about adding such a substantial chunk of code with a number of external
dependencies so late in the release process. I literally would like to start cutting 4.3 release
packages this weekend. Ideally this code should have gone through ALPHA and BETA testing phases.

I think Sebastian's approach makes a lot of sense. Let's put this code into 4.3 as an additional
module but mark is as experimental. This would enable us to ship this functionality early
without fully freezing it and committing ourselves to maintaining its API. At a later point
after gaining some experience with it and hopefully some wider testing we can start making
use of it when it is available on the classpath via Class#forName or decide to simply fold
it into HttpClient proper.

Does this plan work for you?

> HttpClient has made great progress in supporting NTLM and Negotiate, but the setup often
requires considerable configuration.  Using native calls, we can authenticate the current
logged in user directly via windows with no configuration.
