Please try newer (nightly) build.  JSSE code has changed/been-fixed since 
1.0 I believe.

        Subject:        Axis seems to ignore JSSE System Properties


I did post the following to the user list, but since I may be looking at 
changing Axis source code it may be better posting it here.


I am using Axis web services over HTTPS with both client and server 
certificate authentication. Everything is fine as long as I use only the 
default keystore location $HOME/.keystore and default password 'changeit'. 
I would like to specify alternative values for these variables. You can do 
this for JSSE by setting the following System Properties: and

Unfortunately if I do set these then Axis seems to ignore them when it 
makes its invocation. I have looked at the Axis source code and discovered 
that JSSESocketFactory is the class that sets up the HTTPS socket 
connection. It has some default values for the keystore etc but also 
allows overiding them with values from the handler options. Unfortunately 
I don't think this class reads the the ssl system properties. I don't want 
to have to change the Axis source if I can help it.

Any help / pointers to better solutions would be appreciated
