Hello

I am new to webservices and have managed to run a simple Converter webservice successfully using examples (top down and bottom up)from eclipse.org http://www.eclipse.org/resources - my next step is to use a basic authentication mechanism to the Converter service.

can anyone please point me to any example links where I can get some information on how to implement basic authentication...

any help is greatly appreciated.
Sai

If I may be allowed to strut my own stuff, I wrote two articles on WS authentication, covering both HTTP auth and WS-Security auth: part 1, part 2. They use Axis as the SOAP engine of choice, but the principles can be applied to other servers.

I was able do a basic authentication with the help of the article..thanks Ulf. My next step is to go on with SOAP authentication. I think Ulf, your part2 article talks about soap authentication right?..I havent gone through it yet.
Eclipse 3.3.1.1 uses Axis/1.4, I saw that in the http header.

Can anyone please suggest if there are any articles/examples related to SOAP Header authentication using tokens, Thanks Sai.

Um, those articles of mine discuss WS-Security authentication as well. If that's not what you mean by "SOAP Header authentication", tell us what it means.

I think what I was referring to was WS-security, somebody was talking about the soap authentication, I am not sure if they both mean the same thing. I will go through your article part2 and see I can successfully implement it. Thanks for following up..Sai.
