I want to secure my webservice but I don't want to use SSL because of it's cost of performance. So I decided to use XML encryption. I read that at JCP an API for that issue is in progress. Now I wonder how I could use such an API with JAX-RPC because in that case I do not work directly with the XML representation. Is there a way to plug in a encryption/decryption class into the runtime environment of JAX-RPC? What can I excpect from JAX-RPC regarding security today?
Thanx for advice,
