I recently completed coding and unit testing calling out to asecure site using utl_dbws; however, instructions from Oracle note to store the webservice certificates in 3 locations when usint utl_dbws to callout to external webservices. Our systems team has concerns with maintaining so many certificates in so many homes (7).
They are worried about upgrades and maintenance patches affecting them and having to check and reload these certificates with each upgrade and patch.
We are going to test out removing these certificates to confirm if they're truly needed in all three places, but the systems team would prefer certificate management was centralized as with the Oracle Wallet manager.
It looks like I'll be starting over with this project using utl_http instead of utl_dbws because of this certificate maintenance.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience or feedback on this drawback of using utl_dbws.
