Hi All,
I have a webservice which is working fine in test environment, but if I access the same webservice from production environment it is throwing error. I can access the WSDL (production envt) from web browser but not from the client app. Webservice is deployed in Weblogic Application server( in AIX 5.3 box). Please let me know the root cause for this.


Thanks & Regards,
Kishore

If you can access it from a webbrowser I highly doubt the problem is on the production server-side. I guess it could be proxy-related, as web-browsers often have proxy settings set correctly as part of a network policy, and the client app might not use the system proxy settings.

Use a HTTP Monitor (I suggest membrane!) to inspect what's happening. Point both browser and WSclient to the monitor and let it redirect to server. Then you'll see what message, including HTTP headers, each of them is sending and properly compare, and also see response message from each.

A browser should send basic HTTP GET request, os if it's not proxy related it may also be some junk your client is adding and is angering the server.

Personally I think it's some security config in production environment. We use to not worry with security in development env and when deploy in production env we find problems. It's always important to have a test env identical to production env, preferably they being VMs so that you can just clone production env VM to create a test env VM.
