If you are using a web server to handle all the requests and then forward to
j2ee container (as typically is done) then the web server will handle all
the ssl stuff for you.  WSS4J is a ws-security implementation by apache if
you want to actually encrypt and/or sign the xml messages sent by axis.

Subject: Newbie Question on Security

Hi all,

It's just become apparent that the Web services we call are going to be
encrypted using either 40bit or 128bit SSL encryption.

My question is, will Axis be able to cope with the necessary
encryption/decryption required on the responses we get from the remote Web

I've had a look round the Axis docs and haven't found anything relevant.

Many thanks
