Hi,

I have a web service client (using axis) developed using axis:
Ran WSDL2Java on WSDL to generate the client stubs and then filled in the logic to access the web service exposed by soap server.
We need to add mutual authentication (2 way TLS authentication) to this existing web service communication. What changes do I need to make in the client? Any help is appreciated.

thanks,
deep

Hi Deep,
Having mutual authentication is related to application server and configuration that you have put in your application web.xml.

Basically what you need to do in order to have a mutual authentication is longer than being fot in a forum post.

I advice you to take a look at following links to get idea about mutual authentication. they are both about Glassfish and JAX-WS but the concept is the same for other servers and frameworks.

hope these help
