Hello everyone, I'm new to web services so my question is general and may seem vague to some of you:
I need to code a ws client to access a secured web service over ssl ( https ). I have the wsdl file so I was able to generate a proxy ( with Oracle jDeveloper 10.1.3 )
Now, I do not want this client to run on apache/tomacat, Oracle Application server or whatever. I want to run it on a simple jvm that I will run with the java -classpath ... command.
So, keeping in mind that it is a secured web service the client is communicating with, is it achievable? If so, I guess I will need to add to the classpath different jar files that WS needs. And what about the certs I need?
If you have any anwsers and/or documentation on this, please dont hesitate.
WS clients talk to web services, they dont run on them. Yes your client will have to be run with a classpath that provides the specific custom classes. See the javax.net.ssl package for the HttpsURLConnection documentation for a start. Bill
If you're gonna buy things, buy this thing and I get a fat kickback:
