Web Services Security in OFM 11g R1

I ran 2 good blog entries for securing web services from JDeveloper 11g onto WLS 11g R1. Both these are great starting points for that and worked well. Saves a lot of time when it's all laid out step by step.

I always create my WLS domains adding Fusion Middleware Control and that then gives you the ability to test the web service from a browser as well as view some runtime statistics for the web service itself when logging into the "/em" application installed into the admin server.

The blog entry showing how to install Fusion Middleware Control into a WLS 11g R1 domain is as follows. I even started deploying from that application rather then using the traditional console application.

So in short

1. Log into em using an url as follows

http://{server}:{adminserverport}/em

2. Click on your web service application
3. If indeed web services exist in the application you will see a web services table and "Java EE Web Services" tab as shown below.














4. Click on the "Test" icon to test your web service.
