A business requirement in 2 degrees to send HTTP request (GET and POST) from SOA 11g to an external client, which need to send base64 authorization and Content-type in HTTP header along with HTTP request. To incorporate this requirement HTTP Binding Adapter is used in external reference using verb POST and payload xml and verb GET and payload 'url-encoded'

HTTP Headers -
Below properties is added in reference binding in composite.xml:
<property name="oracle.webservices.http.headers">authorization,Content-type</property>

and below property is added in BPEL at the time of invoke:

<bpelx:toProperty name="authorization" variable="xmlgtwyheadervar"/>

<bpelx:toProperty name="Content-type" variable="contenttypevar"/>

While doing so it successfully send POST request and receive response from external client however when using operation 'GET' there is an error:
"Missing WWW-Authenticate header"

Using same properties in POST and GET but POST is working and GET is not working.
