Right now we have several applets running under XP / IE8 / Java 1.5 (we skipped 1.6 completely). We're now testing those Applets with JRE 1.7 and encounter some problems.
The applets send web-requests to the server, which worked fine with 1.5.
In 1.7 a usr/pwd-dialog appears. Entering my credentials, everything works fine too - though now the password is saved and I can't reproduce the problem.
Does anybody know where those passwords are stored? Somehow I can't find that list to remove my entry. Second, I don't know why I was asked for credentials in the first place. Where's the difference to 1.5? Did 1.5 use the IE-credentials and 1.7 doesn't?

It's been a while ... and still no progress. Some applets actually work and connect without authentication, others don't.
I found some articles on this, but no real solution.
