Connecting to a SOAP webservice with a self-generated SSL certificate.
Posted on 2010-11-17
I have a bit of a newbie question.
I have SOAP web-service that I need to to that uses a self-generated SSL certificate. When I use a browser to view the WSDL, it confirms there might be a security issue with the certificate.
My preferred development tool, wont let me proceed any further in my importing of the web-service due to the concern with the Certificate.
I have tried another tool which also did not like the certificate.
I have the WSDL. the XSD files for the web-service. They have provided me with a known good SOAP message I can use for testing.
What I need to determine is if a the web-service should be accessible even if the secure certificate is not valid ?.
If so, what simple tool could be used to try my SOAP messages before they get their certificate issues sorted.
Others claim they can already connect to the web-service as is.
Thanks in advance
