Hi,
I have a question here. Please help.
// login jsp page generate a wml file and get the user name(already known)/password(user type in) to re-submit to server and doing the basic authentication
// the username and password need to be encode with base64 to submit this query
// the encode mechaism needs to be done in the client side. (so, I won't be able to write a servlet to encoding it)
// the simulator won't be able to use <meta> tag (so, I can't use this way to set the header)
How can I submit the username and password with base64 encode?? Does it look like this? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="base64"?>
I've been check with some rfc file, can I use UTF-16 to instead(still fail this way)?
Thanks.
<%@ page contentType="text/vnd.wap.wml"%>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="base64"?>
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN" "http:///www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml">
<wml>
<card id="login" title="Login Screen">
<p align="left">
authentication test in jsp/wml<br/>
Login name:<input name="LogonName" type="text" emptyok="false" value="<%= request.getRemoteUser() %>" />
Password:<input name="LogonWord" type="text" emptyok="false" value="" />

</p>
<do type="accept" label="Next">
<go href="http://localhost/Services_app/login3.jsp" method="get">
<postfield name="username" value="$(LogonName)" />
<postfield name="password" value="$(LogonWord)" />
</go>
</do>
</card>
</wml>
