Hi,
we had a partner website who provided us a webservice to login to their site.
we will send credentials to the webservice and in return they will send us token if the credentials are valid. if they are invalid they will send us error codes.
so everytime user enter/change the credentials we are sending them to their webservice and getting back the token in return. Do you think there will be a limit in number of tokens to create on their side???

I am afraid, only the web service implementor can tell you this.
However, generally security token generators do not have an upper limit on token generation as they would invariably have to deal with huge number of token requests.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
