Well, you got to establish an HTTPS connection and then you send the
required credentials. On the server side you have to set up the Tomcat
HTTPS connector with a certificate and the corresponding pair of
public/private keys. Then you specify in the deployment descriptor that
authentication is required and you are done...

To specify the username and password you need to use stub._setProperty()
and to specify the two key stores you use System.setProperty(). Both key
stores have to exist, need to be specified and do not have to be the
same file...
