Hi,

We are implementing a applciation which provides data to external applications.

For this a external application will pass request parameters in POST method and we have to impelement client authentication for the same.

The servlet which will be provding data has to be HTTPS.

Can anybody pls tell me how we can impelement client authentication by making servlet invoked on https protocol in WAS?

Thnx in advance.

You configure HTTPS requirements/constraints in web.xml, but the actual HTTPS transport has to be configured for the container (see you container vendor docs on SSL support)
