Hey fellow Java Coders,

From what Ive understood a basic web services client using Axis support classes could look as follows:

My question is:
What steps are necessary to make this client run over SSL with 128 bits encryption?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards

The J2EE Security for Servlets, EJB and Web Services sample chapter Chapter 11: Web Service Security describes the necessary steps in "SSL Security for Web Services" (page 16).

Some additional information can be found in the Java Web Services in a Nutshell sample chapter SAAJ under "setting up the client system" (page 156).
I agree. Here's the link:
