Java Web services: Granular use of WS-Security

See the original posting on IBM developerWorks – Java

WS-Security for SOAP Web services doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. By configuring WS-Security at the operation or message level, you can apply an appropriate degree of protection to every exchange, reducing or eliminating the WS-Security overhead for operations that don't need full protection. Dennis Sosnoski continues his Java Web services series with a look at granular WS-Security in Web Services Description Language (WSDL) using Apache Axis2 and Rampart.
