Hi
Currently we have ssl and digital certificate security on our web-based application. We plan to put on wireless a part of our application that will be useful But are struck on security issues.We legally need to be bound by the same security standard thru out all client accessing the application.
How can this be achieved?
Thanks

"Normal" cryptographic APIs may not be suitable on some wireless devices due to their need in processing power.
You may want to check out Bouncy Castle which provides lightweight crypto API usable with J2ME... There are a lot of crypto primitives available in their package.
You may also want to read the following free book chapter: Chapter 12: Protecting Network Data from Wireless Java: Developing with Java[tm] 2 Micro Edition by Jonathan Knudsen

We were able to work with Certicom on digital certificate support under Personal Java (soon to be Personal Profile). Of course, it's not cheap.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
