Ortwin, 

Yes, I was glad to see in
http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_merchant-outside that they added in
the section "Integrating with Backend Applications" also a "web services"
sub-section, that after logging in under
https://developer.paypal.com/cgi-bin/devscr?cmd=help/main offers "API Client
Tools ... For Java with Axis". Also, in "API Reference", they even appear to
issue client certificates, so better authentication appears to be possible
(although I wonder why it is not enough to just be able to upload an arbitrary
certificate as a merchant that I affirm having a good related private key to).


"Instant Payment Notification", however, is still their number one item listed
for backend integration, so while perhaps better alternatives are available (and
I may well also start investigating their use), IPN remains a broadly advertized
and possibly predominantly used option - thus the HttpClient-based example at
hand hopefully still is useful to many developers.
