Subject Re: [Axis2] Authenticating a WCF client to a Java Axis web service
Date Sun, 28 Jun 2009 08:13:53 GMT
Hi Prahalad,
           To use HTTP Basic Auth, you don't need to inject anything to SOAP
header, it works at HTTP level not at SOAP level. Did you try this [1] ? If
the certificates used for SSL are self signed ones, you may need to set
these  [2] system properties.
