>         Environment: Windows, application running in a java applet started by firefox,
connection to a remote server via a squid proxy with basic authentication

> Hello,
> The java applets are deprecated, but the issue may impact other use cases.
> During a POST call made from a java applet via a proxy server with basic authentication,
SystemDefaultCredentialsProvider.getSystemCreds(...) calls Authenticator.requestPasswordAuthentication,
which wrongly returns "null" authentication.
> The java applet console shows that a NullPointerException was ignored.
> I managed to fix the issue by providing the following values to Authenticator.requestPasswordAuthentication
(getSystemCreds is currently providing null for those ones ):
>   prompt = authscope.getRealm()
>   url = context.getAttribute(HttpClientContext.HTTP_TARGET_HOST)
> Both values are needed ( prompt == null && url != null -> dialog box asking
for credentials, prompt != null && url == null -> crashes firefox)
> Note that when downloading the applet jar files, the java is providing values for all
the parameters of Authenticator.requestPasswordAuthentication (according to a breakpoint in
> Thanks
