so you are talking about implementing webservices security. Before i give the code to you (ofcourse i don't have one), i got to ask you how did you implemented your webservices ?

JAX-RPC Client?
Apache-Axis?
SAAJ Client?

Here is the link which will guide you how to implement your security based on your implementation

Hi all,
Thanks for your responses. I got the way out of it.
We need to create keystores at the client and at the server side. Using that keystore we can access the webservices over https.
