Subject Encrypting The Admin Passwords used by the Axis Admin Servlet
Date Sun, 10 Mar 2013 11:32:36 GMT

We have some web services in our project, where our wsdd files contain the
following lines:


  <parameter name="sendMultiRefs" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="disablePrettyXML" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="adminPassword" value="admin"/>

  <parameter name="dotNetSoapEncFix" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="enableNamespacePrefixOptimization" value="false"/>

  <parameter name="sendXMLDeclaration" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="sendXsiTypes" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="axis.disableServiceList" value="true"/>

  <parameter name="attachments.implementation"


   <handler type="java:org.apache.axis.handlers.JWSHandler">

    <parameter name="scope" value="session"/>


   <handler type="java:org.apache.axis.handlers.JWSHandler">

    <parameter name="scope" value="request"/>

    <parameter name="extension" value=".jwr"/>




I wanted to know the use of the above highlighted element (adminPassword),
and also, is there any way we can introduce our own encryption mechanism to
encrypt this password so that it is not visible in plain text to anyone?

Thanks and Regards,

Rajat Aggarwal
