Need to develop Webservice (and client) based on HTTPS on Websphere. I do not have any knowledge of certficates / KeyStores etc. Before moving to Webservices development I would like to gain Strong knowledge on the fundamentals of Security.

Can anyone please point me to good resources (links ) for security in webServices.

Thanks in advance,

Have a look at some of IBM's redbooks on A few worth looking at are:

Can you provide information or reference on a list of jar files needed to deploy a stand alone Web service Java client. I use WSAD to build the service provider, and a Java client. Yet WSAD doesn't include any jar files for the Jav client project.

Thanks for the response RR Kumaran. But it still doesn't solve my problem. It includes what are needed for COMPILING the client classes. If some of the classes in these jar files during runtime call some classes in other packages stored in jar files not needed for compilation, I still need to find out what these extra jar files are.

I agree. Here's the link:
