Subject Re: Basic authentication without a secure connection

I think my idea would be scenario 4.)

I want to:
Open a browser and write Tomcat application's address
Write username and password in login fields of the application;
Save credentials in session after successful login;
Have link to completely separate application on newly opened page; 
When link is clicked, request should be sent that contains row:
"Authorization: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ=="
Login username and password would be the same for both applications.
On this way, I don't need to type username and password again;
>From now on, php application is on-board and Tomcat can be forgotten (it
remains reachable only via browser's Back button);

I will look now after httpd that you mentioned, awarnier.
