Subject [users@httpd] Apache Basic Authorization and Java
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2002 10:01:13 GMT
Dear Friends!

I have a problem with Apache Basic Authorization and Java Plug-In when
using the latest version of Netscape and Internet Explorer with Sun java

I am not sure of being here right, but all my applies to Sun Forums and
other related user groups failed :-(((

I'll try to explain the situation as clear as possible:
I'm using the Basic Authorization Scheme from Apache 1.3.26.
After logging in on the Web-server, I try to call my applet which
communicates with the application server through servlets (I use
Tomcat-4.0.4-LE as a servlet container).
When pressing the link from which an applet and a servlet are being
called, I get a Log-In Dialog again, but this time - from Java Plug-In.
although I had been already authenticated myself! 

I have this problem only with the latest version of Netscape and with
all versions of Internet Explorer with SUN VM. When changing to
Microsoft VM in IE settings the problem dissappeared. But I'd like to
use the VM from SUN ...

For the Netscape I haven't found any solution at all. The worst thing is
that I can't understand the nature of this "double" (one from Apache,
another from Java) authorization... Why doesn't Java know that I've been
already authenticated myself? Can I give Java this information at all?

I'm using Java 1.4.0_01.

Could anybody point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance
