Guys,

I am newbie to web services.

I implemented one example web service in which I am exposing 3 different methods to the outside world.

MyService exposing the following operations to the outside world,

OperationA
OperationB
OperationC

3 different clients (remote client) need an access to my webservice.

Client - A need an access only to OperationA
Client - B need an access only to OperationB
Client - C need an access to all OperationA, OperationB, OperationC

In MyServices.wsdl document, I am exposing all the above operations. If Client - A view my WSDL, they will know about all my operations but I do not want to expose it to the client who doesn't need it.

How can I restrict clientA and ClientB to view only OperationA and OperationB?

Your response is greatly appreciated.

Well in that case you will have to give each client a separate WSDL and service endpoint. Of course "client A" "Web Service Operation A" should call exactly the same "Service Operation Implementation A" as the "client C" "Web Service Operation A" would. Similarly the "client B" "Web Service Operation B" should call exactly the same "Service Operation Implementation B" as the "client C" "Web Service Operation A" would.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
