When using basic http authentication, Authorization header should be sent with initial request
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: AXIS2C-716
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2C-716
             Project: Axis2-C
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core/transport
    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
         Environment: This should be a platform independent change.
            Reporter: Michael Mole
             Fix For: Current (Nightly)


Currently when using basic http authentication, the Authorization header is not sent with
the initial request.  Instead, Axis2/C waits for the server to first send a failed authentication
response with a WWW-Authenticate header.  Then Axis2/C will resend the request with the required
Authorization header.  If the user specifies the Authorization information up front, then
the Authorization header should be sent with the initial request. 

It adds unnecessary overhead to require 2 requests to be sent every time.  Also in my case,
my server is not sending the WWW-Authenticate, so I am unable to authenticate at this point.
 (Although this piece is probably a bug with my server.)
