Security error when calling webservice

I have a webservice with mutual certificates security. When I call it from my client I get this exception in the server log:

Error in Verifying Security in Inbound Message. com.sun.xml.wss.impl.PolicyViolationException: ERROR: No security header found in the message

Does it have something to do with the webservices-tools.jar, etc. files? I checked the lib folder of glassfish on my server and I couldn't find them. Or do the jars have to be on the client side?

I created the webservice client in Eclipse with the usual new->web service client. The service worked before I added the security thing into the wsdl (in Netbeans). The webservices ear deploys correct.

Now I got past the last error. I think it was because I didn't use the webservices-rt lib.

Now I have another exception however:

I created my own keystores through the guide.

I know that it finds the keystores because I tried changing in the xml files to wrong filenames and got a file not found exception. I'm sure that what is written in the cml files (server and client side) is correct (at least according to the guide).

Do I have to add or change anything in the domain.xml file or from Glassfish admin console because I created new keystores?

 sorry for the late reply.  If you have a new Keystore and it contains a self-signed certificate then make sure the self-signed cert is also present in the configured TrustStore.
