Java Webstart/plugin can't retrieve IE7 browser login info for basic authentication

    Details

      Description

      When the server is configured to use basic authentication and when user accesses to the server with IE7, IE7 will pops up a login dialog, after user provides the right login credentials, the response page is sent back to browser. If the response page contains a java applet tag with codebase pointing to an archive file on the the same server, JRE 6u14 will popup another login dialog, user has to provide username/password again to dismiss it.

      The correct behavio is that if you ask IE7 browser to remember the username/password, the Java applet should retrieve the credential info from browser and don't display dialog box again to user.

      This behavior is working fine with IE6, and it is broken on IE7.
