Client - Basic Auth

A client, which is secured with Basic Auth can be used to connect to a secured service.
The client is enriched with the Authorization: Basic <token> header by passing the http:CredentialsConfig for the auth configuration of the client.

For more information on the underlying module, see the Auth module.

# As a prerequisite, start a sample service secured with Basic Auth.
