I will be looking at IE NTLM auth and Jason's code very soon. It remains to
be  seen  how  the  division  of functionality will be partitioned but I am
confident  that  it will make it in in one form or another. I am hoping one
method  in an SmbToolkit class or similar will suffice that either takes IO
streams  and  performs  the HTTP negotiation itself or a method that simply
takes  a LM hash and returns a state obnject or throws an SmbAuthException.
Does  anyone  know of an extreemly simple servlet engine I can install with

I think it's clear that the primary use for jCIFS is web services so I will
be  focusing  more  on  functionality that's usefull in this arena. I might
also  distribute  some  CGI  programs  with "Network Explorer" or "Internet
Neighborhood" type components. At work I have a very nice file retrival CGI
with  appropriate  mime  type headers based on a mime.txt map file. I might
even  go  as  far  as  to  provide a jcifs-web.jar that has CGI and Servlet
classes prepared and ready to go. 

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and more importantly to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
