Digest Authentication Problem

We have a server which supports only digest authentication. We have to build a core java application(may be a JAR) which can first authenticates user from the server and then go a head with consuming services. I am not been able to find a best way of doing this. Any pointer(some specific API or design) which can lead to a good practice implementation would be highly appreciated.

I'm not sure what you mean by "core Java", but the HttpClient library supports digest authentication, and is one of the best HTTP clients around.
