This is actually a very rarely used feature, so finding documentation on it is difficult. I, for one, believe that sending a username and a password this way is risky, but, if you really need to do so, you can modify the SOAP header request.

The trick is to create a handler for this, there's excellent documentation at this site :

My only question is, are you sure this is what you need to do?

i just to check with particular username specific page has to be open.
means with given username particular page is displayed or not.

i have to pass username in SOAP request.

you were given 2 ways to do that, which one is appropriate for your scenario and the implementation details are up to you to figure out.

I rather prefer sending the details in the HTTP headers, just the username, of course.
