  WS-Security in the Enterprise, Part 1: Problem Introduction
Subject:   Java .NET Interop

    It's definitely possible, and this interoperability was exactly the intention of the standard - providing secure communication between disparate WS systems.
    As far as practical implementations on the Java side: besides Apache project, which is still under way, there're several commercial implementations on the market (for instance - from Phaos), but most that I've seen are:
    a) very generic, and, therefore, quite complicated
    b) not too satisfactory as far as their quality goes
