Free Resource

Modernize your application architectures with microservices and APIs with best practices from this free virtual summit series. Brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

For doing SSL with SOAP, there’s a few things you need to setup.

C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\soapUI-Pro-4.5.1\jre\lib\security

Also did it at the main jre at C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\security

keytool -genkey -alias svs -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks -keysize 2048

git config --global core.autocrlf true

If these properties are not set, the default ones will be picked up from your the default location.[$JAVA_HOME/lib/security/jssecacerts, $JAVA_HOME/lib/security/cacerts]

To view the contents of keystore file, use:

keytool -list -v -keystore file.keystore -storepass changeit
To debug the ssl handshake process and view the certificates, set the VM parameter -Djavax.net.debug=all

keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias selfsigned -keystore keystore.jks -storepass changeit -validity 360 -keysize 2048


added to soapui.bat
C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\SoapUI-4.6.3\bin



openssl s_client -showcerts -host webservices-cert.storedvalue.com -port 443

keytool -keystore clientkeystore -genkey -alias client

wsdl2java.bat -uri my.wsdl -o svsproj -p com.agilemobiledeveloper.service -d xmlbeans -t -ss -ssi -sd -g -ns2p

System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStore", keystore.jks");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword", "changeit");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStore", "clientkeystore");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword", "changeit");

setx -m JAVA_HOME "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51″

setx -m javax.net.ssl.keyStore "keystore.jks");
setx -m javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword "changeit");
setx -m javax.net.ssl.trustStore "keystore.jks");
setx -m javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword "passwordislong");
