I studied Hanumant Deshmukh's book for 310-080 and the book does not contain the details of Authentication for J2EE1.4.
It's about a mock question from one of the web sites:

Which Basic Authentication type is optional for J2EE container?
Choices were HttpBasic Authentication, FormBased Authentication, HTTPS client Authentication and HTTP Digest Authentication.

I wonder if all Authentication types are optional or not. Any idea?

FORM & Client-Cert authentication are inside the J2EE specs. Basic authentication is supported by all browsers/J2EE web containers. So that makes Digest authentication, the only that is optional.

HTH.
