Hi Guys,

Working on a project, I am experiencing problems working with Tomcat 6.0 together with Axis 1.4. My Java version is jre1.6.0_0

I installed Tomcat 6.0 in a folder in my C Drive on Vista HP called Tomcat. so in the Tomcat folder is a folder called Tomcat 6.0. I can acces Tomcat by localhost:8080

I downloaded axis 1.4 and extracted it in the webapp folder of Tomcat. So there is a folder called axis in the webapp folder of Tomcat. I can acces axis by going to localhost:8080/axis/

Everything worked fine except for 2 things. The Javamail and the XML security optional component. I downloaded javamail and did put the mail.jar file in the lib folder of Tomcat. That worked fine.

So here is my real problem. The XML security ( http://xml.apache.org/security/ ) will not work. But for the project I am working on, the XML security is a requirement. I downloaded XML security bin 1.4.1 from http://xml.apache.org/security/dist/java-library/ and put the xmlsec-1.4.1.jar file in the Tomcat lib folder. I got the following error on the validation page:

Warning: could not find a dependency of class org.apache.xml.security.Init from file XML Security is not supported.

See http://xml.apache.org/security/ {4}
The root cause was: org/apache/commons/logging/LogFactory
This can happen e.g. if org.apache.xml.security.Init is in the 'common' classpath, but a dependency like activation.jar is only in the webapp classpath.

Underneath came the following message: Found Java Secure Socket Extension ( javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory ) at an unknown location

I tried everything, downloading the previous XML security bins, version 1.1.0, 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 1.3.1 and 1.4.0 but I still get the error.

My question is: How can I get XML security working? What are the steps I have to take?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

It's been a while since I last used Axis 1, but there's more to getting security to work than just deploying the XML-Sec jar. You need all the jar files that are part of WSS4J.

The article Web Services Authentication with Axis 2 (written by yours truly) should also be helpful.

Axis ships with a test JSP page that checks for all of the jars.
It's called happAxis.jsp or something like that.
Look for it in the root directory of the axis application.
