Authentication for client run on jdk 1.4

Hello everyone,

I'm developing web services using jax-ws. I want the client must provide the credentials when consumes the web service through SOAP request header.:

Map<String, Object> req_ctx = ((BindingProvider)port).getRequestContext();
req_ctx.put(BindingProvider.ENDPOINT_ADDRESS_PROPERTY, WS_URL);

Map<String, List<String>> headers = new HashMap<String, List<String>>();
headers.put("Username", Collections.singletonList("mkyong"));
headers.put("Password", Collections.singletonList("password"));
req_ctx.put(MessageContext.HTTP_REQUEST_HEADERS, headers);

But jdk 1.4 doesn't support generic and the webservice library of jax-ws. Could you guys give me some advice for this? Or suggest me other way to make the web service secured and accessible for earlier jdk such as 1.4, 1.3
