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

I'm writing an http client application. When on the server Tomcat is configured to require
an 
authentication (basic) my client raise a strange error. If authentication is disabled then
it 
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
it 
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.
