Reg: Message Level Security

I have a question regarding message level security to the Webservices.

We have a webservice running with message level security implemented and working on Websphere application server.

I have generated a client for that webservice and now i want to implement message level security at client side also such that I can talk to the service.

Webservice provider has given me policyset, bindings and certificatess to me.

I have the following questions.

1. How can i attach the policset to the client. Copying the policyset in META-INF is enough?.

2. I assume provider given bindings are useless for me and I need to generate myself. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I am struggling a lot for implementing this. . Please help me.

By "message level security", do you mean WS-Security? If so, then each SOAP stack has its own way of using that; which stack are you using on the client side?
I agree. Here's the link:
