I am writing a flex app that needs to talk to a pre-existing
SOAP web service. Unfortunately the web service uses http basic
auth to authenticate a user. I am trying to figure out exactly how
this is accomplished but I cannot find any substantive data on the
subject. So I was hoping someone here could point me in the right
direction or possibly answer the question outright.
I DID find reference to using the useProxy attribute on the
WebService element (and that I would need to make some changes to a
flex-config.xml) but I could not get this to work, nor could I find
any explanation as to what exactly I was doing. I, as a workaround,
attempted to place the auth info in the url (e.g.
but this did not work either as the request never made it to the
server, I am assuming actionscript doesn't like this format?
Anyway, does anyone have any advice/pointers? Any help would
