Hi,

I have implemented java webservice using axis 1.1. Can you please suggest sample code or steps to secure the web service that i have implemented using axis 1.1.

Sample authentication code will be helpful

The first advice would be: Axis 1.1 is way, way old. Switch to something newer, like Axis2 1.6.

Having said that, there are generally two kinds of authentication for WS: transport level (like HTTP authentication) and message level (like WS-Security). Generally, the latter is much to be preferred. Are you aware of the differences? And which one are you thinking of implementing?

In that case I recommend to start with an article I wrote a few years back: http://www.javaranch.com/journal/200709/Journal200709.jsp#a3
