    @PolicySets annotation of ws-security in JBossTools

    Joseph Hwang Novice


      In jbossws-cxf-4.2.0.Final, @PolicySets annotation is provided for easy binding of WS-security and WSDL. For example,


      ===== SEI

      @WebService(targetNamespace = "http://www.aaa.com/jbossws/ws-extensions/wssecurity")
      @PolicySets({"WS-SP-EX223_WSS11_Anonymous_X509_Sign_Encrypt"}) // WS-Security binding is ok!
      public interface IHelloWorld {

         public String sayHello(@WebParam String name);


      ===== Implementation Class

          portName = "HelloWorldServicePort",
          serviceName = "HelloWorldService",
          targetNamespace = "http://www.aaa.com/jbossws/ws-extensions/wssecurity",
          endpointInterface = "com.aaa.wss.IHelloWorld"
      @EndpointConfig(configFile = "WEB-INF/jaxws-endpoint-config.xml", configName = "Custom WS-Security Endpoint") // This line is the problem!
      public class HelloWorld implements IHelloWorld {

         public String sayHello(String name) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
           return "Hello " + name;



      ===== jaxws-endpoint-config.xml  // This file is not built on Eclipse IDE

      <jaxws-config xmlns="urn:jboss:jbossws-jaxws-config:4.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance


      xsi:schemaLocation="urn:jboss:jbossws-jaxws-config:4.0 schema/jbossws-jaxws-config_4_0.xsd"> 



            <config-name>Custom WS-Security Endpoint</config-name>   















      WIth Eclipse IDE @PolicySets annotation in SEI works well. It binds WS-Security with WSDL.

      But @EndpointConfig annotation in implementation class does not work at all. In Eclipse IDE @EndpointConfig can't import the  jaxws-endpoint-config.xml configuration.

      For more information, pls, check this issue,@EndpointConfig annotation not working.

      The SoapUI has the user interface menu of WS-security endpoint configuration.( Pls see this site, http://www.soapui.org/SOAP-and-WSDL/applying-ws-security.html )

      So, this is my suggestion to JBossTools team. I hope JBossTools would have user interface of WS-Security Endpoint Configuration like that of SoapUI.

      That will help developers make ws-security codes more easily and conveniently.

      If you think I am right, I hope the related JIRA to be made ASAP.


      Best regrads!
