 Nope, you can use WCF, Axis2/C, WSF/PHP or any other client. If you use
Axis2/Java client then you need to engage Rampart module at the client

The policy is annotated in the WSDL of the service. Key information has to
be configured through Rampart configuration.

I suggest you to take a look at following tutorials.
