I've done a little more testing with this, and it does not prompt for
authentication if I open the document via HTML view. I only get the
authentication request when opening via DAV. Also, if I edit the
web.xml and use 'smbdav.NoLockManagerFactory' as the
'smbdav.LockManagerFactory', everything works fine, but the file is

Subject: FW: Davenport Authentication Question
Hi list. I have run into an interesting situation, and wanted to see if
anyone has experienced similar behavior.
- jCIFS 0.9.7
- Davenport 0.9.10
- Java 1.4.2_06B3
- Windows XP Client accessing Linux Samba Server
- HTTP Basic Authentication Only
When I first hit Davenport, I accessed the following URL:
As expected, the system prompts me for my username/password, and
displays the folder contents in HTML view. I then clicked the link to
switch to WebFolders view, and the view was displayed properly. I then
double-clicked a word document in that directory, which caused Davenport
to prompt me for Authentication credentials again. I entered the same
credentials, and the document opened properly.
I've attached the log file from this activity. The only thing that
appears out of place, is that when I attempt to open the file, Davenport
does not seem to detect the existing HTTP session. Once I have opened a
single document, I am able to open any document in the folder without it
prompting me for credentials.
