Subject Re: How do I know ws-security is enabled programmatically?

Hi Supun,
Can you please point me to how I could get axis2_conf_ctx from svc_client?  It doesn't seem
I find out another way though, from axis2_conf.h, you have the following interface:
AXIS2_EXTERN axis2_conf_t *AXIS2_CALL axis2_conf_create(const axutil_env_t * env);
So you can create one axis2_conf_t, then in this same inferface, you have:
AXIS2_EXTERN axis2_bool_t AXIS2_CALL axis2_conf_is_engaged(axis2_conf_t * conf, const axutil_env_t
* env, const axutil_qname_t * module_name);
You can now figure out if rampart is engaged, is this a right approach? The drawback is that
If service client already create one axis2_conf_t, this way create the same structure twice.

When you create the svc_client you create the axis2_conf_ctx. This holds all the axis2 configurations.
You can access the axis2_conf_ctx from svc_client and you can access the axis2_conf_t from
axis2_conf_ctx_t. axis2_conf_t contains the list of all the engaged modules. 

Have a look at conf.c file.

Hi Manjula,
Maybe my writing is a bit confusing, my question is not really about setting the policy
file programmatically, my question is about how I know the ws-security is enabled  programmatically
(which means that the rampart/c module is engaged in axis2/c configuration file). I need to
know this because my client code need to support both ws-security enabled and ws-security
disabled (the normal case), so that in the case of no ws-security I don't have to read the
policy file and set any ws-securit related parameters programmatically.

when you engage rampart there should be a policy to construct the
message. Please see Rampart/c samples for more info.
