Can I use javascript to pass credentials to the new java plugin?

Hello,
I have HTTP server that is protected with Basic Authentication. There is a page that references an Applet. The user is prompted for a password by the browser, then prompted again by the Java plugin. I am wondering if I can pass credentials to the Java plugin through the applet tag? Alternately is the some method I can use through Javascript?

Thanks
