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
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.

I think its HTTP DIGEST authentication that is optional.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: Form Based Authentication in J2EE1.4
I passed the SCWCD with 86%
good book for j2ee 1.4
built-in mechanisms of HTTP
Why J2EE1.4 and not J2EE1.5 ?
What is called optional authentication type?
