HTTP and HTTPS are network protocols. You application is (or should be) agnostic to these.
The server on which your application will run will have to be configured to use HTTPS.
Do a bit of reading on SSL configuration on Tomcat or IIS for that matter and you should have a better idea.

Thanks a lot for your responses.....I just read about OSI layer to understand the networking aspect of it...Looks like SSL comes at Presentation layer of OSI stack.....and our application program runs at application layer....So it need not worry about what is next layer doing.
