I have a jax-ws soap web service (implemented NOT like Session bean) generated in NetBeans from wsdl. Deployed on Glassfish 3.1.2. I want to secure access to it using mutual certificate authentication usig SSL and https. I have read a lot of articles and books. As I understood there are several variants:

use OpenSSL (unfortunately it fails during deployment, I can show stacktrace if needed);
use http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/j-jws10/index.html [Jax-ws metro security]
I have the following questions:

What is the best and the most adequate method? May be you can advise me anything else?
Could you show me a good tutorial which includes every step (generating certificates, modifying source code, config Glassfish)?
And why web service security is considered different from simple web apps security?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
