Since it�s a HTTP1.1 complice (BASIC also), why this sentence is not true?

"This authentication method is supported by all the commonly used browsers."

as far as i know it would be some simething like this:

BASIC - HTTP1.1
DIGEST - HTTP1.1

CLIENT CERT - J2EE SPEC
FORM - J2EE SPEC

does it make sense?

Tks.

Authentication (either Basic or Digest) is an optional feature of HTTP/1.1, not a required one. All browsers support Basic, but few support Digest.

(I don't understand the list of authentication methods, so I can't comment on that.)
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
