is IAIK jars required for SSL connection

Hi,

I am new to webmethods and am working on a java application which integrates with WebMethods. I am trying to create a SSL Connection from my java application and see the following exception (below is the stack trace). From what I understand it needs IAIK jars to make a connection and these jars need to be purchased from https://jce.iaik.tugraz.at/sic/Sales/Price_List. My question is this the only way a java application can make a secure connection or are they any other options?

Thanks,
Murali
