Subject Authentication behaviour
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 23:01:22 GMT

I'm writing an http client application. When on the server Tomcat is configured to require
authentication (basic) my client raise a strange error. If authentication is disabled then
works fine.
I analyzed the communication using WireShark and I noticed a strange behaviour. The 
server answers with 401 before it has received the whole content send from client. In fact
seems that the answer become right after the server has received the http header.

Is this behaviour intentional? If yes, why?

The Tomcat version is 5.5.26

Bye, Maurizio.
