Hi Daniel,

Have a look at http://www.lukas-renggli.ch/seaside/tutorial/slides/08.pdf,
especially slide 19 will be interesting for you. Probably you also
want to study slides 16-18, they discuss the way to deal with URLs in

Add a WABasicAuthentication decoration around your component ...

   super initialize.
   self addDecoration: (WABasicAuthentication new authenticator: self).
... and check the authentication data within your component by writing
a method like:

MyComponent>>verifyPassword: aPassword  forUser: aUser
   ^aPassword = 'abc' and: [ aUser = '123' ].

Hope this helps,

Lukas Renggli
