Hi,
I am facing a weird problem.
I have web application deployed in Jboss 4.5 . I have configured HTTP Basic authentication. everything was fine , cannot remember what changes caused this problem.

here is the problem,

if I open a browser and point it to my application URL , I will be prompted to enter username and password which is normal and expected.
But, if I open one more instance of IE ,and point to my app it is not prompting me to enter username/password. Initially I thought it could be the issue with IE and its session merge feature.I tried by running IE in -nomerge option ,but no gain the problem persist still.

the strange thing is that it happens even across the different machines.i .e from another machine which is on the same network , I will launch IE and try to point browser to my application URL , it takes me in without prompting for the username and password.

how does its retaining the session info and not asking for authentication? I am sure its not effect of caching and all , I have cleared cookies and temp files.

please suggest me..

You have misconfigured your authentication. Please post the relevant configuration details.

By the way, there is no 4.5 release. Did you mean 4.0.5?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
