SOAP Analyzer and client SSL certificates

Post by matsek » Thu Oct 31, 2013 4:55 pm


I would like to use the WSDL SOAP Analyzer in Oxygen XML Editor to test a SOAP web service. The web service is hosted on a server that is configured to requrie client authentication at the transport level (i.e. requires connections to present an SSL client certificate), and I am wondering whether Oxygen will support this.

I have made a test call, and received a 403 Forbidden response from the server, and I presume this is because the request by default does not include any credentials.

Thanks in advance.

Oxygen doesn't have explicit support for SSL client certificate authentication, it relies on the Java runtime support. So you'll have to import the certificate in the keystore of the Java runtime that Oxygen is running with. Unfortunately this is not the most user friendly operation. You can find instructions here (if you are using a client certificate for authentication, skip to step 2) :

For Windows and Linux the JRE is located in the Oxygen installation folder (the jre folder). For Mac the JRE is usually located in /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home
