[keycloak-user] Example for using rest admin?

We have admin-client and the example is in the directory "admin-client" 
of example distribution, also there is some docs here : 

However our admin client doesn't support configuration through JSON file 
- it's all programmatic configuration for creating "Keycloak" object as 
you can see in the example. You can externalize to JSON in your own app 
if you want configuration externalized.

Also we don't support the service accounts for admin client ATM. 
Currently you always need admin user and his password available and 
"Direct access grant" is used under the hood by admin-client to 
authenticate admin. Feel free to create JIRA to support Service account 
for calling admin-client. It makes sense to support this IMO.
