        Description



        Name: yyT116575 Date: 12/04/2000


        Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.3.0-C
        Using JRE version 1.2.2 Classic VM

        When an applet (using Java Plugin) creates an http socket connection to an URL
        that requires a user name and password (standard HTTP reply of 401 Authorization
        required) and the Socket is allowed to interactively ask for credentials, the
        prompt is provided once. However, if the user accidentally enters an invalid
        user name / password combination, the socket connection fails and so do all
        subsequent attempts. The prompt is not displayed again until the plugin (and
        browser) is shut down and restarted. The plugin should
        a) allow the user to retry the password until it is accepted, or
        b) return an exception to the applet, but redisplay the prompt on the next
        attempt and not cache the invalid credentials and automatically reuse them.
