Yes, POST the info, get the cookie, then you can acces the resources.

In curl:

# With CSRF protection disabled, directly authenticate
$ curl -c cookie.jar -X POST -d 'username=admin' -d 'password=gnusolidario' \

# Now, resources are available
$ curl -b cookie.jar

With CSRF protection enabled in the config , it's a bit more annoying,
but still possible

# Retrieve login form
$ curl<login_url>

# Now, have to look for the CSRF token in the login form
# Then, authenticate with token
$ curl -c cookie.jar -X POST -d 'username=example' -d 'password=example' \
  -d 'csrf_token=<token>'<login_url>

Then similar access as before.

Not familiar with Java, but there is probably a similar workflow as

Hope that helps.
