Re: Intercept basic authentication popup

I'm not an expert in this by any means (and certainly don't know your requirements), but it seems like basic auth is fundamentally incompatible with a GWT app (or at least the portion you describe).

I think a more compatible model would be to rely on something like cookies, have a particular service that does not require authentication, and then check the response to that to see if the user is authenticated.  Then you can put access control on all your other services to ensure authenticated access.
