Rational Application Developer Web Project Basic Authentication Configuration: Security Editor

If you are trying to force basic authentication to your web project resources in Rational Application Developer v6.1, ensure that you explicitly specify ‘BASIC’ as your authentication mechanism in the RAD Security Editor.

If you do not, you can get yourself into a weird situation where defaults on one application server cause your basic authentication to work, while defaults on another server cause your application to never authenticate.
