I want to secure a collection of Jersey JAX-RS web services running in Mule using user/passwords.  Preferably, I need to support two mechanisms for acquiring the user/password.  First to pass the credentials as part of the HTTP 'authorization' header.  If the credentials are not passed in via the HTTP header, then prompt the user for the credentials.  I need both options because the services may be accessed via an automated tool, or manually by a user via the web browser.  Additionally I would like to use categories for authentication (e.g. admin, superuser, etc), where some services require different credentials.

How do I do this using Mule, Jersey, and Spring?  Can someone please point me towards some example code?
