Hi Java Leads,
while i am connecting client web-service using proxy details (username/password/IP/), we getting below exception

"javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: Failed to access the WSDL at: https://webservices?WSDL. It failed with:
Socket is closed."

can any one please explain why i am getting this ,what i have done mistake.

And here the code what i have used
Authenticator.setDefault(new ProxyAuthenticator(username, password));


public class ProxyAuthenticator extends Authenticator {

private String userName, password;

protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
return new PasswordAuthentication(userName, password.toCharArray());

public ProxyAuthenticator(String userName, String password) {
this.userName = userName;
this.password = password;
Kindly help me to fix this.
