    Why avoid HTTP Authentication?

    Anthony Whitford Newbie

      From 12.4.7. HTTP Authentication, the Seam docs say:

      Although not recommended for use unless absolutely necessary, Seam provides means for authenticating using
      either HTTP Basic or HTTP Digest (RFC 2617) methods.

      Can someone elaborate on why HTTP authentication is meant to be avoided?
