I have generated classes using Axis2 1.4 tool for Exchange 2007 Web services. Now I am connecting Exchange server using Exchange server credentials which are working fine and able to get the results from Exchange server.

Now, I have to implement SSO for the same. In this case we are retrieving cookies from server (In my case IBM portal server) and pass these on Axis2 generated classes. What I found in research, we can set the cookies in two places.

First place at org.apache.axis2.context.ConfigurationContext configurationContext which used the code below,

String cookie = "LtpaToken="+cookieLtpaToken+"; JSESSIONID="+cookieJSessionID+"; PD-S-SESSION-ID="+cookiePDSessionID;
configurationContext = ConfigurationContextFactory.createDefaultConfigurationContext();
configurationContext.setProperty("cookie", cookie);

Second place at org.apache.axis2.client.Options which used the code below,

Options options = m_EWSservice._getServiceClient().getOptions();
HttpTransportProperties.Authenticator authenticator = new HttpTransportProperties.Authenticator();
List authScheme = new ArrayList();
authScheme.add(exchangeAuth);// DIGEST, NTLM, BASIC
// authenticator.setPassword(password);

options.setProperty(HTTPConstants.AUTHENTICATE, authenticator);

// Managing the session using the service client
options.setProperty("cookie", cookie);


In the given code lines, we are not setting password as I have to achieve SSO.

Once we use this code and run our application, we are getting error. That is,

Please suggest me if anyone is having some idea for the same.
