Subject RE: using both HTTP and HTTPS

My understanding is that on the server side HTTPS is responsibility of your
servlet container and not Axis.  So, there is no reason to deploy more than
one instance of Axis engine.  Both HTTP and HTTPS requests will be passed to
the same Axis engine by your server container.  Please correct me if I am

Thanks for the clarification Pankaj, 

One additional question. Do we need to have two Axis deployed (one for http
and one for https) or could we have web services using both http and https
under a single axis deployment?

Hi Jean, 
These environment variables are for the client side. 
On the server side you can setup Tomcat or whatever servlet container you 
have chosen for accepting connection on both http and https and it would 
work fine. 
If you want to run multiple clients, some with HTTP and some with HTTPS, 
then you can run those under different shells. 
Experiment with it a little. It is fairly straightforward. 
Pankaj Kumar.

Subject: using both HTTP and HTTPS 


We would like to have web service accessible through HTTPS. 

According to some literatture found on the web about that 
<> > ), it seems that 
some specific environment variables need to be set to make it work properly:

set AXIS_HOME=d:\apache\xml-axis-alpha3 

set AXIS_SERVLET_DIR=%AXIS_HOME%\webapps\axis 

set AXIS_CONTEXT_URL= https://localhost:8443/axis

Because of those environment variables, how can we have both HTTP and HTTPS 
in the same environment? I was thinking of deploying Axis 2 times into 
tomcat for example, one under https, the other one under http. Environment 
variable would prevent that from working. 

Any ideas?
