Hi, as per Servlet 2.x specifications, the returns
the login of the user making the request, if the user has been
authenticated, or if the user has not been authenticated. Whether
the user name is sent with each subsequent request depends on the
browser and type of authentication.

type of authentication.



Which means. of course, container-based authentication which has nothing to do with Windows login.
