Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Administration Guide

Configuring Application-Specific Web Services Security

Application-specific web services security functionality is configured (at application assembly) by defining message-security-binding elements in the Sun-specific deployment descriptors of the application. These message-security-binding elements are used to associate a specific provider or message protection policy with a web services endpoint or service reference, and may be qualified so that they apply to a specific port or method of the corresponding endpoint or referenced service.

For more information on defining application specific message protection policies, refer to Chapter 5, Securing Applications, in Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Developer’s Guide.
