Hi Friends,

I am a novice in webservices. I created a webservice with UserName Token in Rampart. After lots of effort it was created and i tested it with soapUI and it was working fine. However when I wanted to create a client I found that here have to include Rampart module to create the webservices. (Still I have not been able to successfully execute a Rampart client)

So my question is how can we achieve platform independence in webservices if we are using Rampart modules and Rampart jars in the client also. How will a .net client be able to access our webservies.

Thanks,

The Rampart libraries are required for the client only if the client uses the Axis2 SOAP stack. If the client uses some other library (whether it be in Java or .Net or some other language), then you would use whatever WS-Security libraries are required for that SOAP stack.

Rampart's WS-Security implementation does work cross-platform and cross-language (otherwise it wouldn't be a proper implementation).

Question to Poornima,

Since you mentioned that you are learning WS using Axis2 and implemented Rampart security, would you mind sharing the details of your example, any pointers I too can refer, as I too wanted to learn the same.

Thanks

Rampart comes with many ready to run examples; did you check those out?
