About this tutorial
This tutorial describes how to configure WS-Security for a JAX-WS web service to run in WebSphere Process Server V7 in one WebSphere cell, and a JSP client to run in a different WebSphere cell. It also provides the steps needed for single sign-on across WebSphere cells.
Although WS-Security addresses message-level authentication, confidentiality, and integrity, the scope of WS-Security in this tutorial is limited to propagating credentials through the use of Lightweight Third Party Authentication (LTPA) tokens. Other means of propagating credentials in the WS-Security envelope are supported in WebSphere Application Server.
The objective of this tutorial is to make it easy for WebSphere users to configure WS-Security for a JSP client to run in a WebSphere cell, and a JAX-WS web service to run in a WebSphere Process Server cell.
To follow the steps in this tutorial, you need WebSphere Integration Developer V7 to generate and configure the JSP client and the JAX-WS web service. The WebSphere Process Server test environment that comes with WebSphere Integration Developer is adequate to run the test, but you need to create another WebSphere cell for the JSP client to demonstrate the single-sign on capability through LTPA.
- WebSphere Integration Developer V7
- WebSphere Process Server V7 test environment that comes with WebSphere Integration Developer
- Another WebSphere cell
