I've seen a few reports of this, but I want to see if anyone else is facing this problem:
I've downloaded JBoss 2.4.3 + Tomcat 4.0 off sourceforge.net (latest non-beta code) and I can't get BASIC auth to popup a username/password box for the life of me. Instead, I am just given a 403 Error. I've set my jboss-web.xml security-domain to java:/jaas/other for now and set up the properties files as need (eventually i'll switch it to my custom LoginModule I want to test).
Is anyone aware of this problem? I tried using JBoss 2.4.4 + Tomcat 4.0.1, and while my EJBs weren't working correctly, I had hoped the BASIC auth prompt would come up... No dice.
