Axis 1.4 username/password auth with stubs

Hello,

I am using an Axis 1.4 client with a WebSphere 6.1 web service. I am using the username/password properties in the soap header to pass auth data. When I create a thin client not using Axis I can pass the auth data tot he web service fine and it all works but when I try to do the same thing with the Axis client I get.

AxisFault
faultCode: {http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/}Server.securityException
faultSubcode:
faultString: com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.SoapSecurityException: WSEC5048E: One of "SOAP Header" elements required.
faultActor:
faultNode:
faultDetail:
{http://xml.apache.org/axis/}stackTrace:com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.SoapSecurityException: WSEC5048E: One of "SOAP Header" elements required.

I am using the WSDL2Java stubs in the client and then trying to add in the username/password to the Call class. Here is the code.



When I try and access the SOAP Header this way:

_call.getMessageContext().getRequestMessage().getSOAPHeader()

the value is null.

I am sure that it is something simple I am missing but I cannot seem to figure it out.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

I'd be hesitant to hand-code security if there are ready-made, tested, libraries that do can this for you. For Axis 1, that would be WSS4J. There's an article I wrote on the subject: Web Services Security - Authentication. It comes with ready-to-run code that demonstrates using WS-Security authentication with Axis 1.

Thanks Ulf,

The ws-security was what I was missing. Thanks.

One comment for others is that I did not see any link in the document as to where to get the xmlsec jar could be found but I got it at http://santuario.apache.org (If it is in the doc but I missed it sorry).

Thanks again,

Chris

The jar file is part of WSS4J (which is linked in the article, but not very prominently).

Let us know how you make out.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
