Hello,

Question about apache axis:

I don't understand the axis client handler processing.

Imagine, there is a web service on a tomcat server.

The client can be a standard java application. But i need to add a handler to sign the SOAP message before sending it to the server. Does the client must have a tomcat on his side to do that ?

thanks

The client does not need to have a web container, though you will need to have the Axis jars in your classpath.
What exactly do you mean by "sign the message"? Axis does not support WS-Security, although it does support SSL connections.
If that's what you're trying to do, this article should get you started:

thanks for your reply.

I was thinking that a server container was needed because of the clientsecuritydeploy.wsdd file provide by axis security sample.

I have to authenticate the sender of a message and the integrity of the message so I try to use apache axis with XML-security.
On the server side, there is a handler wich intercept the message and verify the signature before executing the service.

I follow your link right now...
