This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I have deployed a webservice with a custom AuthenticationHandler:
When I deploy it on resin or WebSphere, everythings works fine, but when I deploy it on WebLogic, I always get a (401)Authorization Required.
WebLogic somehow "bypasses" my custom authentication implementation, when I provide credentials.
If I don't provide any credentials, I actually hit my custom authentication handler, but if i do provide credentials, it seems that WebLogic intercepts the call and tries to authenticate the provided user, which fails (as it should), and my implementation is never called.
So basically my question is: how do I stop WebLogic from trying to "take over" authentication ??
