Set userid in Java Code

I have a java application that is connecting to a URL and downloading files using the following code:

HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url;

Several different users will be using this application, however,  I want the URL connection to think a specific user is calling it each time.  Is there a way to change userid in the Java code so that it appears as though a specific user is running the application?

Thank You

for connection you need user name nad password right ??


HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
connection .setRequestProperty("UserName", userName);
  connection .setRequestProperty("Password", password);

The connection does not require a user name or password input.  The userID is obtained by the website from the network connection.  In other words, if I am logged into the network as user = 123456, then the website is picking that user id from the network connection.
