With Jersey Client

ClientResponse response;
String auth = new String(Base64.encode("username" + ":" + "password"));
final String headerAuthorization = "Authorization";
final String headerAuthorizationValue = "Basic " + auth;
final String headerType = "application/json";
Client client = Client.create();

WebResource webResource = client.resource("url");
response =  webResource.header(headerAuthorization, headerAuthorizationValue).type(headerType).accept(headerType).get(ClientResponse.class);
