Thanks Scott, that helped :-)

Now I get the SOAPException below if I try to use SSL. (The Web Services is running under
Bea Weblogic 6.1 and SSL is up and running there...)

  msg=Error opening socket: null; 
  targetException=java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Error opening socket: null]

  at org.apache.soap.transport.http.SOAPHTTPConnection.send
  at org.apache.soap.rpc.Call.invoke

-> Is the problem on the client or on the server side?
-> Does the SSL connection go through the browser?

I already checked the following documentation:

I'm thankful for any hint ;-)

Are you using Apache SOAP 2.2?  This is an issue that I believe was fixed in that version.
 If you are using 2.2, perhaps it is fixed in the current daily build.
