WebServices Authentication wss4j

Hi,
I am using Axis1.2 on my project, I have a requirement where I need to updates some information through webservices, I have been asked to use Apchewss4j1.5 user name token profile for Authentication.

Can someone give me some pointers how I should start it and from where? I need to create a POC first. Client will provide me a wsdl file. Right now I dont know what the wsdl looks like. Do I need ask specific questoins regarding authentication to client?

1. for updating you must know the user name and password .
2. wsdl is nothing but interface file thats created in server side ... you must implemented that interface in ur client side (where you going to call the web services method )
3.My suggestion is use jDevloper its easy to devlope wsdl to java code for you .

Hi,
I'm revisiting this thread, I did find some material online on how to authenticate WS using WSS4j. This article  (http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/axis.html) is very close on what I am trying to achieve. However I have some issues running those examples.

Got to #5 in the article where it says "Another way to do this is to have the client application set the username and CallbackHandler implementation programmatically instead of client_deploy.wsdd"

Can please someone help me on this. I really had experts helping me on Java and sql on this thread, but no  one so far for Webservices..

URL portAddress  = null;
            try {
                  
            //portAddress = new URL("http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService");
            portAddress = new URL("http://PSDEV01:8088/mockStockQuoteServiceSOAP11Binding");
            //portAddress = new URL("http://PSDEV01:8088/mockStockQuoteServiceSOAP11Binding");                                                COMPLEMENT
            
            System.out.println("Testing Webservice");
            StockQuoteServiceSOAP11BindingStub stub;
            StockQuoteServiceLocator stockServiceLocator = new StockQuoteServiceLocator();
            Remote remote = stockServiceLocator.getPort(StockQuoteService.class);
            Stub axisPort = (Stub)remote;
            axisPort._setProperty(UsernameToken.PASSWORD_TYPE, WSConstants.PASSWORD_DIGEST);
            axisPort._setProperty(WSHandlerConstants.USER, "wss4j");
                        
            StockQuoteServicePortType portType = (StockQuoteServicePortType)stockServiceLocator.getStockQuoteServiceSOAP11port(portAddress);
            
            double price = portType.getPrice("ABC");
            
            System.out.println("Price is "+price);
            


Thanks

It looks like you may just have forgotten to add the third ._setProperty line from the Apache Axis WSS4J example website...

axisPort._setProperty(WSHandlerConstants.PW_CALLBACK_REF, pwCallback);
