I know it but it's over ssl and therefore i use tomcat. 
I try to made up two different authoritation method: one with jaas-tomcat real
and one with ssl+axis basi auth.

-> Hi Rudi,
->   What we have done is implement Axis/JAX-RPC client and server side 
-> handlers.  The client side handler attaches a credential in the HTTP 
-> header ("Authorization" heaer), and the server side handler 
-> authenticates it, and makes the user id available in both the 1) 
-> MessageContext in AuthenticatedUser axis object (I believe) and also in 
-> 2) getRemoteUser() of the servletrequest (using a servletrequest 
-> wrapper).  You can get configure and get parameters into the server side 
-> handler through the server side deployment descriptor (wsdd).  You can 
-> get configuration parameters into your client-side handler by  
-> dynamically registering it with a handlerinfo and Map with params, and 
-> runtime parameters by using _setProperty on the stub object (i think).  
-> The stub properties get propagated to the MessageContext of the client 
-> handler (this is true at least in 1.1, but not in 1.0).
-> We went this way because it doesn't seem like WSSE is fully cooked (or 
-> at least fully implemented and easy to use).
-> I also tried using SOAP headers in the envelope themselves (instead of 
-> out of band HTTP headers), but could not retrieve them in the server 
-> side handler for some reason, so I gave up on that.
-> The whole thing can be thrown over SSL so that should provide your 
-> on-wire safety.
