Hello Gabriel-

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, this introduction to SAAJ talks about setting up Tomcat to work with SSL web services.
I agree. Here's the link:
