Subject Progress of HTTPCLIENT-1625/open questions

Hi folks,

I have finally started coding of that issue. While I was able to write a 
working prototype within an hour authenticating against Apache Tomcat 
and Apache Web Server, an issue arose I am not really clear about:

Is a credentials provider always necessary for a target host? In other 
words, do I always need something like this:
CredentialsProvider p = new BasicCredentialsProvider();
p.setCredentials(AuthScope.ANY, new 

Although the credential is by default obtained at runtime?
I have noticed that authentication is not executed if no cred provider 
is set and the logs are not very chatty about that.

I will post regularily must progress on the issue.
