I've been told I need to send requests to a .net service. They have supplied me with this policy document:

Google tells me I can do this on my out-going messages to get them to use

These constants are in the addressing.1.0.jar. The problem I have is that I cannot find this jar for download *anywhere*. not from the Apache website, certainly.

Problem solved:

I found an archived copy of wss4j (1.5.0) which includes addressing.1.0.jar. More recent builds do not include this library.

Just before calling the web service, set

I needed to sign these elements of the message:


so the wsdd needed to change to this:

<deployment xmlns=""; xmlns:java="">;
<transport name="http" pivot="java:org.apache.axis.transport.http.HTTPSender"/>
<globalConfiguration >
<parameter name="addressing.sendReplyTo" value="true"/>
<parameter name="enableNamespacePrefixOptimization" value="false"/>
<requestFlow >

<handler type="java:org.apache.axis.message.addressing.handler.AddressingHandler">
<parameter name="referencePropertyNames" value="{Element}{}Action;{Element}{}MessageID;{Element}{}ReplyTo;{Element}{}To;{Element}{}From"/>

<handler type="">
<parameter name="action" value="Timestamp Signature"/>
<parameter name="action" value="Timestamp Signature"/>
<parameter name="user" value="username"/>
<parameter name="passwordCallbackClass" value="classname"/>
<parameter name="passwordType" value="PasswordText"/>
<parameter name="signaturePropFile" value=""/>
<parameter name="signatureKeyIdentifier" value="DirectReference"/>
<parameter name="signatureParts" value="{Element}{}Action;{Element}{}MessageID;{Element}{}ReplyTo;{Element}{}To;{Element}{}From;{Element}{}Timestamp;{Element}{}Body"/>
</requestFlow >
</globalConfiguration >
