XML & Web services: SOAP over SSL

  1. SOAP over SSL (2 messages)

    Hi All,
        I'm using WebSphere tools to develop web services, I saw a lot of information talking about SOAP over HTTP but I din't see anything about HTTPS, now my questions are :

    1) HTTPS is supported as transport protocol ?
    2) Is there information to configure https on WebSphere ?

    If possible, you should resolve HTTS on the web server layer (say, IIS or Apache). This way WebSphere receives simple HTTP requests.

    Hi All,
        The solution was pretty easy .

    1) Change WSDl file
      <wsdl:service name="X509CertService">
        <wsdl:port name="X509Cert" binding="intf:X509CertSoapBinding">
          <wsdlsoap:address location="https://localhost:9443/WebService......../....."/>

    2) Change the java client

    public static void main(String[] args)

    Security.addProvider(new IBMJSSEProvider());


    3) By default WAS 5.0.2 use https transport, so on this side you should not modify anything .
