This is a very broad question which I will answer in part.
HTTPS, which is HTTP over SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is one way of securing a request/response, which as you probably know encrypts data over the wire.
The container usually does this for you if you configure it correctly, read your container notes.
Many other security features can also be applied to web applications such as BASIC Authentication. I would advise you invest in a
Security Book to find out more.

Thanks James... Is it just about configuring to make a site secured, or does some part of coding also go into this.
This whole concept is kinda vague.

If you pickup a book on J2EE security, you will find sections on
"declarative security" and "programmatic security".
Setting up an SSL certificate is done completely at the container level.
You can specify which components must go through SSL in your deployment descriptor.
As James said, it's a very broad topic.
If you're serious about it, get a book.
"Mastering Tomcat" by Wiley Press has a good introduction to security.
A lot of what it covers applies to J2EE in general, not just
How to ask a question...
Simple Servlet Examples
I agree. Here's the link:
