Subject Sense of realm element in login-config
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2002 13:00:58 GMT
Hi,

Can anyone explain the use of realms in basic authentication.
One can specify the name of a realm in the login-config of the web.xml but
apparently this is not used since there is no
standard JAVA API to pass this the servlet container. What is the sense of
having it when it is not really used?

Thanks,

--  Dirk
