Hi

Out of the four authentication (BASIC,FORM,DIGEST,CLIENT-CERT) WHICH have been defined inthe servlet spec & therefore need to be supported by all application servers ??

Thanks

All 4 are defined in the servlet spec, as a quick read of the "Security" section will show, but that's not the same as being required to be implemented.

DIGEST is not required for servlet containers, and CLIENT-CERT is optional for servlet containers (but mandatory for JEE containers).
