HTTP BASIC authentication support is broken
Project: JBoss Seam
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 2.0.1.GA, 2.0.1.CR2, 2.0.1.CR1, 2.0.0.GA
Environment: JBoss AS 4.2.2GA, Seam 2.0.0GA
Reporter: Alan Feng
The class org.jboss.seam.web.AuthenticationFilter, which provides HTTP BASIC authentication support, throws exception and never performs the authentication.
If the user access the site the first time and the page accessed is protected by HTTP BASIC authentication, a NPE will occur from the AuthenticationFilter.processBasicAuth() method.
In addition, the AuthenticationFilter.processBasicAuth() method does not invoke the identity.authenticate() method to actually perform the authentication, although it parses the BASIC authentication headers properly.
Please see the related forum post for detailed description of the problem and the proposed fixes.
