I have web service written with JAX-WS RI 2.1. I would want an easy authentication.
So not any client that knows the url would be able to access the data that the web service provide.
Can you give me a direction?

The standard way to add authentication to WS is by way of the WS-Security standard. Check out the Metro SOAP implementation, it integrates JAX-WS with WS-Security.
I agree. Here's the link:
