The WSIT Tutorial

ProcedureTo Secure the Example Service Application (MCS)

The following example application starts with the example provided in Chapter 3, WSIT Example Using a Web Container and NetBeans IDE and demonstrates adding security to both the web service and to the web service client.

For this example, the security mechanism of Mutual Certificates Security is used to secure the application. To add security to the service part of the example, follow these steps.

  1. If you haven’t already done so, update the GlassFish keystore and truststore files as described in To Update GlassFish Certificates.

  2. Create the CalculatorApplication example by following the steps described in the following sections of Chapter 3, WSIT Example Using a Web Container and NetBeans IDE.

    1. Creating a Web Service

    2. Skip the section on adding Reliable Messaging.

    3. Deploying and Testing a Web Service (first two steps only, do not run the project yet)

  3. Expand CalculatorApplication->Web Services, then right-click the node for the web service, CalculatorWS, and select Edit Web Service Attributes.
