WS Client with Proxy and Autentification

I know this isn't exactly the correct way to ask a question, but I'm having a problem:

I have a wsdl stored locally, and I need to create a Web Service Client to call that Web Service. The problem is the service is behind a firewall and I have to connect to it through a proxy and after that I have to authentify to connect to the WS.

What i did is generate the WS Client with Apache CXF 2.4.6 then set a system wide proxy

System.getProperties().put("proxySet", "true");
System.getProperties().put("https.proxyHost", "");
System.getProperties().put("https.proxyPort", "8080");

I know this isn't a best practice, so please suggest a better solution, also if anyone can give me a tip on how to set the authentification I'dd really appreciate it


With apache CXF

HelloService hello = new HelloService();
HelloPortType helloPort = cliente.getHelloPort();
org.apache.cxf.endpoint.Client client = ClientProxy.getClient(helloPort);
HTTPConduit http = (HTTPConduit) client.getConduit();
http.getProxyAuthorization().setUserName("user proxy");
http.getProxyAuthorization().setPassword("password proxy");
