This page lists the WS-Policy files that are associated with the endpoints and operations of this WebService. The operations are listed below the endpoint - click on the + sign to view them. Click on the endpoint or operation name to configure an associated WS-Policy file. For example, you can specify that the WS-Policy file applies only for inbound (request) SOAP messages, and so on .

A Web Service can have zero or more WS-Policy files assoicated with it. WS-Policy files follow the guidelines of the WS-Policy specification. WebLogic Server uses them to specify the details of the message-level security (digital signatures and encryption) and reliable SOAP messaging capabilities of a Web Service.

The WS-Policy file can be specified at the Web Service endpoint-level, which means that the policy assertions apply to the entire Web Serivce, or a WS-Policy file can be specified at the operation-level, which means that the policy assertions apply only to the specific operation. This asstant helps you configure a WS-Policy file with the Web Service endpoint.

Programmers, when programming the Web Service, use the Java Web Service (JWS) annotation @Policy inside the implementation of the Web Service to specify an associated WS-Policy file; administrators cannot override this association using the Administration Console. Administrators can, however, associate additional WS-Policy files using assistants such as this one.

WebLogic Server includes the following pre-packaged WS-Policy files that you can use for configuring message-level security and reliable messaging:
