Subject RE: Auth Notification in WSDL?
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2002 13:21:23 GMT
That sounds like what I'm going to have to do.  The only problem is that I'm
not sure where to start with that.  Honestly, I haven't had a chance to do
much research on it yet.  Any pointers on where to start looking (web, Axis
dox, etc.)?  Thanks. :)

Why not use the SOAP Header to carry authentication, and define the message
in your WSDL?
If you define a compound 'AuthHeader' type and message that uses it, Visual
Studio .NET should auto gen the stubs.

Jason - A single standard for defining and implementing authentication
does not exist, so it is hard to understand the dialogue between you and
the external company.

It seems like they are requesting a 'login method' to call. The
implementation will vary depending upon how you've baked security into
your infrastructure.   Maybe you just need to provide them with a spec?

Subject: Auth Notification in WSDL?

Is it possible (or even necessary) for a web service to note in the
generated WSDL (http://...?wsdl) that the service requires
I'm writing my service in Java, but the client, written by an external
company, will be written in C#, and he's telling me that the stub
based on my current WSDL is not creating the method calls for setting up
authentication.  Am I forgetting to do something in my .wsdd or is he
expecting something that won't be there?  Thanks...
