[jboss-user] [JBossWS] - SAAJ API & basic authentication (AS 4.0.4)

I secured my web service with basic authentication and I'm trying to
use the SAAJ API to access it:

//System.setProperty("http.basic.username", "user");
//System.setProperty("http.basic.password", "pass");
    URL endpointUrl = new URL(endpoint);
    SOAPMessage response = connection.call(message, endpointUrl);

Using the system property approach works but I was wondering if
there is a better way to pass the username/password information?
Sun's reference implementation (http://java.sun.com/webservices/docs/1.6/saaj/saaj-security.html) 
states that I should be using http://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT/FILE
but this doesn't work.

Looking at the implementation (/webservice/src/main/org/jboss/ws/soap/SOAPConnectionImpl.java), it seems that I could pass an EndpointInfo object into the call method but this class seems to be a server class.
