Shane Bryzak commented on JBSEAM-743:

Initial support for Basic authentication (digest still to come) has been implemented in CVS.  I honestly don't recommend that anyone use this awful thing, the default behaviour on Firefox at least is to cache the credentials until the browser is shut down.  This means that once you log in, you can't log out without shutting down the browser (kind of like Hotel California -  you can check in but never leave :).

> Find some way to support these awful things. Probably have to parse headers ourselves. Just copy paste some code from Tomcat or Acegi or whatever (whichever is the least obfuscated and over-designed).
