hello

i was wondering if i have a wsdl file that contains some ws-policy and ws-securitypolicy stuff in addition to any other ws-* content , would ws-import be able to import it correctly because i couldn't find any jax-ws annotations that would address the ws-* stuff , and if there is no way to use jax-ws with ws-* can you tell me where i can find a complete ws-* implementation for all the ws-* specs specially security cause i have a requirement to use user name password authentication with my services over https .

thank you in advance

JAX-WS is an API for implementing SOAP web services in Java, nothing more, nothing less. It is up to each JAX-WS implementation (like Metro, Axis2, etc.) to integrate further standards that are commonly labelled WS-*. Check the documentation of whatever implementaion you're using to see what it supports and how to use it.

WS-Security, specifically, is supported by all major JAX-WS implementations.

thanks for the reply but i have then another question , i couldnt find any annotations in metro or even axis2 that enable us to indent ws-* features inside the implementation code for the web service specially ws-security

thanks

Correct. JAX-WS does not address those other WS-* specifications. As I said, check the documentation of your implementation to learn how it supports other WS-* features.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
