    If turn on the Global Security in Websphere, you will need the password to login the admin console and deploy the applicatoin.

    Http is a protocol, which is not encrypted.
    Https is a protocol, which is encrypted. And the application using the Https protocol is far slower than the appliction using the other.

    It is not necessary to use https in every part of your application.. But if you are sending secure data like password or credit card number from your app it would be best to use ssl.. So if you want to use ssl in websphere you must enable global security...
