    Specifying security credentials for and Axis - EJB call

      This forum is for J2EE Web Serivces not JBoss.NET (the 3.x versions of web services), and not axis.

          I have similar problem.

          I created session EJB's endpoint and exposed it. EJB was successfully deployed and corresponding web service was accessible to clients.

          Then I created simple jax-rpc client using dynamic proxies and tried to access that WS. I specified username and password as it is said in the "Java? API for XML-based RPC 1.1" specification. Following is a code snippet from the client:

          final QName qname = new QName("http://kit.test/ws4j2ee/ejb/test", "MyTestService");
          final ServiceFactory factory = ServiceFactory.newInstance();
          final Service service = factory.createService(mwe URL("http://localhost:8080/test-ejb/TestService?wsdl"), qname);
          final TestService ts = (TestService) service.getPort(TestService.class);
          final javax.xml.rpc.Stub stub = (javax.xml.rpc.Stub) ts;
          stub._setProperty(javax.xml.rpc.Stub.USERNAME_PROPERTY, "guest");
          stub._setProperty(javax.xml.rpc.Stub.PASSWORD_PROPERTY, "pwd");
          System.out.println("calling method 'testMethod' with value " + argument);
          System.out.println("web service response: " + ts.testMethod(Integer.parseInt(argument)));

          I also configured security domain in the login-config.xml and tried to invoke the client. And I got the following in the server log:

          2005-06-07 12:24:22,404 DEBUG [org.jboss.webservice.server.ServiceEndpointServletEJB] doGet: http://localhost:8080/test-ejb/TestService?wsdl

          As it follows from the log, the login module was invoked but it was provided with 'null' username and password.

          Can anybody tell me how I can make it work? I'm using JBoss 4.0.1 sp1.

            Now I set up HTTP basic authentication for the endpoint (in jboss.xml) and tried again. And I got 401 HTTP error code (unauthorized).
