public static class SpnegoAuthenticator.SpnegoTokenFixer extends java.lang.ObjectThis class implements a hack around an incompatibility between the SPNEGO implementation in Windows and the SPNEGO implementation in Java 8 update 40 onwards. It was introduced by the change to fix this bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8048194 (note: the change applied is not the one suggested in the bug report)
It is not clear to me if Windows, Java or Tomcat is at fault here. I think it is Java but I could be wrong.
This hack works by re-ordering the list of mechTypes in the NegTokenInit token.
