the webservice I want to access is using HTTP 1.1 basic challenge response protocol. And if i send any soap message it comes back saying invalid parameter. Is there any specific format in the soap request? or is it else where. I am using SAAJ. what java library is to be used.

Thanks DV. I am not using axis. There is a framework for webservices developed in house. It is using javax.xml.soap calles. The call is made using the soapConnection object and I dont see the methods that can accept username and password. Do you if there is a work around? I can modify the existing functionality but has to with java-api. I cannot use axis.
