Configuring Message Parts to be secured in WSIT 1.0

WSIT 1.0 allows different message parts(eg: Addressing Headers,SOAP Body etc..) to be either signed or encrypted. Netbeans  provides a easy way to configure message has to be secured. One can configure their application such that only responses from the server can be secured and request from the client to the server can be plain SOAP Message.



                                                          Snapshot 1: Input and Ouput Message parts

Snapshot 1 shows Message Parts tabs for Input and Output Message under the operation getAccountBalance. These tabs allow user to configure message parts to be Signed/Encrpted for getAccountBalance request from the client and getAccountBalance response from the server.




Snapshot 2 : Message Parts that are Signed and Encrypted by default
 
Snapshot 2 shows the message parts that are Signed, Encrypted by default. As seen the snapshot 2 user has the option to change the default configuration by adding/removing message parts.

For eg: If user wants to secure only the response message from the server and not the request then the user needs to unselect all the Message Parts under Input Message as shown in snapshot 3.




Snapshot 3: All Message Parts unselected (Message will be secured).

Note : Even though none of the message parts shown above may be secured but the SOAP Message may have
Security Header with Signature and Timestamp based on the Binding level policy.

WSIT is available as part of Glassfish v2.
