What web service are you wanting to access? Without giving a lot more detail, there's not a lot of help that you can be provided.

There is a web service which provide the functionality of encrypting/decrypting data. I want to send a string to that service and need encrypted string back.

It will also help if you will tell me how to call any web service from m/f.

Thanks-

Just so you know, googling "web service" returns about 411,000,000 hits. It is your responsibility to narrow down what you want, not ours to read your mind.

If there is a web service providing encryption / decryption, then there probably is an application programming interface for that service. Find the manual for the API, read it, and follow its directions.

As far as the mainframe side, for example, CICS supports access to web services as providers or requesters -- so CICS is one option on the mainframe to call the web service. Details are in redbook SG24-7206, Implementing CICS Web Services. I'm sure there are other ways to call web services -- but since you didn't tell us how you plan to invoke the web services there's not really any point in going further.
