Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1394) Native windows Negotiate/NTLM via JNA
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 17:11:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13756790#comment-13756790
] 

Ryan McKinley commented on HTTPCLIENT-1394:
-------------------------------------------

Thanks for looking at this Oleg -- i was away for the holiday weekend.

What do you think about changing "winauth-jni" to "httpclient-jna" to match the other packages?
 perhaps "httpclient-win" or "httpclient-native".  In addition to using JNA for authentication,
it would also make sense to read the system proxy settings etc

Also note that JNA != JNI -- JNA allows access to native functions *without* writing C++ code


----

> The release of this feature will have to wait until a decision about Java 1.5 compatibility
for HttpClient is taken.

Anything you want/need me to do?  I could move the whole thing to waffle release until it
is possible to integrate here

thanks

> 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.
