Hi, I have a question about servlets that set Authorization headers. I have a servlet that loads passwords as a Properties object, authenticates against the header values from Authorization, and setStatus to SC_UNAUTHORIZED if authentication failed. However, I get 503 error on tomcat if another servlet does the same thing, using the same password.properties file. Can anyone please explain to me what is wrong? Thank you.
