Adding Basic Authetication to SOAP Message  RSS feed

I want to add a userid and password to my HTTP header when I am using SOAPto call a web service.
I am sending my SOAP message (web service) using message.send(). This doesn't accept any arguments for user id and password. However, the send() method instantiates a SOAPHTTPConnection object which does have a setUserName() and setPassword() method. These end up in the HTTP Header collection. However, when message.send calls the SOAPHTTPConnection.send() method it sets the Headers parameter to null.
So I do I get the username and password in the SOAP message for Basic Authentication? I don't think that creating a SOAPHTTPConnection object in my code would work since message.send() creates a new one.
Any help would be appreciated.
