I have enabled one-way ssl on it. got a trial ssl certificate from verisign. installed them on the keystore/truststore on the server as well as the jre (cacerts and jssecacerts truststores) being used by the client. the client is on different machine than the server.
i have developed the service through 'bea weblogic workshop 9.2' now when i try to test the service through the 'web services explorer' within bea weblogic workshop i receive the following error:
IWAB0135E An unexpected error has occurred.
IOException sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
<Jul 13, 2009 6:45:44 PM EDT> <Warning> <Security> <BEA-090485> <CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN alert was received from yunus.l1id.local - 10.10.2.72. The peer has an unspecified issue with the certificate. SSL debug tracing should be enabled on the peer to determine what the issue is.>
if i try to access the web service (over ssl) through the browser (ie/firefox), it works fine. i have generated a proxy class to access this web service through the same bea workshop and that works fine too. certificates are identified and all. i also created a small .net (c#) application that calls this secure web service over ssl from another machine and it works fine too!
of course non-secure url for the web service is working fine in every case.
what can be the reason for this failing only in 'web services explorer' in bea workshop?
