Enabling both HTTP and HTTPS for an Web Service, deployed in the Same WAR

Hello,

I am new to web service deployment. I have created a simple web service using JAX-WS 2.0 implementation in IBM WebSphere 6.1. The webservice resides in a .WAR file.
The web service is deployed and fully functional in HTTP. Now I need to enable HTTPS access to this web service.

If I enable HTTPS, will the HTTP access to the service be affected? Is it possible to have the web service or the web module support both HTTP and HTTPS?

Please provide your valuable inputs.

Thanks.

Hi!
To expose both a HTTP and a HTTPS endpoint for one and the same service, you can have two different <wsdl:port> elements in the <wsdl:service> element in the WSDL, like in this example:

Note that both <wsdl:port> elements refer to one and the same binding.
Best wishes!
