> I _don't_ understand what all is meant by all the authentication
methods given (FORM vs BASIC).  

FORM means you have your own method, that you are collecting logins via
HTML forms, and storing it in the servlet session context.

BASIC means you are using the built-in HTTP method, and checking the
headers for login information.
