I'm interested in building an Applet that acts as an HTTP client which
has the ability to perform Basic Authentication.  I have so-far found
the
JDK 1.1 classes (URL and URLConnection) inadequate to accomplish this.
While researching the problem, I ran across the Jigsaw packages, which
appear to provide that ability.  However, it's not clear to me from the
API documentation what needs to take place.

Is this possible using the w3c.www.http and w3c.www.protocol.http
packages, and if so, could anyone provide a simple example?

Thanks,

Jack Van Keuls
