Hi,

Am very new to web services!!

Am using JDeveloper to create a simple web service, and then a client to test the web service. However when I run the client I get the following error:



I have no idea what is causing this, the client was generated by a code wizard in JDeveloper so in realirt I haven't actually coded anything.

Any pointers would be very much appreciated.

I understand that, but what password is it looking for?

I never specified any when I created the webservice - i just followed a JDeveloper tutorial to create the service and then the client. Nowhere there does it mention about passowrds!

Just some possibilities:

Did you deploy the web service or did you just write the client? If somebody or something else deployed the web service then it may require account credentials - something like a database logon.

Is the Web service deployed locally on your machine or another machine over the network? If you are going over the network you may need to cross a firewall in which case the proxy credentials need to be configured.

Hi,

You were right. The service was deployed locally on my machine, but the connection I was trying to use was my network address, obviously out firewall was causing problems. When i changed it to localhost it all worked fine.

Can't thank you enough for your help
