No. I use the setBasicCredentialsWithScope variant, which takes more wiring work to set up, but it's conceptually the same internally, just means it uses the credentials with any host and port. Same objects are wired up in the end.

Note that like most clients, it doesn't volunteer the credentials, it expects to get a 403 back to challenge it. It takes more wiring again to get the client to skip that, which I do for efficiency, I don't like extra round trips.

My How To includes the wiring I use. [1]
