1. first request send with 'Prefer: persistent-auth' + 'Authorization: Basic 
   XXX'  headers

2. server will reply with header: Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=YYY which should be 
   stored and used as 'cookie: JSESSIONID=YYY' with 'Prefer: persistent-auth'  
   header in all future calls to the server

3. to destroy persistent-auth, perform a call to the sever without 
   persistent-auth header
