Subject Re: Axis2/C - USERNAME and PASSWORD

Hi Mole,

Currently the auth header is sent only if the server requests for
it. So if your server sends a WWW-Authenticate:.... header when
authentication failed at the first request, Axis2 will send another
with the required header.

However, I think we should have allowed the user to send the auth
header without waiting for a failed response in the first place,
because it is only an additional overhead, if the user already
*knows* that the server requires basic auth, Somehow we missed it
from 1.1 release :(

Regards,
Dumindu.
