AIR Authentication

I have a web application that performs some fairly basic HTTP requests to receive XML.  I've complied it for AIR and I'm having issues getting JBOSS to pass my request.

I get an authentication prompt from the web server.  When I look at the traffic using Fiddler

Here is my Call:
                   air-http-call.txt

Here is the error from Fiddler:

body><h1>HTTP Status 401 - </h1><HR size="1" noshade="noshade"><p><b>type</b> Status report</p><p><b>message</b> <u></u></p><p><b>description</b> <u>This request requires HTTP authentication ().</u></p><HR size="1" noshade="noshade"><h3>JBossWeb/2.0.0.GA</h3></body></html>

Any ideas - I suspect I'm missing something basic?

Thanks,

John

Point of clarification - The code works fine in my web application.  I'm just having trouble getting it to work in a AIR application.

Just a wild guess - this may be a security issue with https being called from AIR.
