In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Modernizing Axis1 Services Painlessly
Migrating with WSAS

Managing the Service on WSAS
Go back to your list of service, but this time click on the bid link under services. This should bring up the interface shown in Figure 7. There’s a lot you can do here, but for now let’s click on the Manage Module Engagements link. That should bring up the interface shown in Figure 8.

The various modules in the Module combo box represent Axis2 modules that implement various WS-*. Let’s say we’re interested in WS-Security. To enable this, we simply pick rampart from the list, as shown in Figure 9. Click the Engage button, and just like that WSAS will activate its WS-Security module for your service, as shown in Figure 10. Similarly, you can pick sandesha from the Module list and WSAS will enable WS-Reliable Messaging for your service. Let’s take a look at some of the security options we have available to us.

Security Configuration
Let’s go back to our Service listing (Figure 7) and this time click the Security Configuration link. This will bring up the interface shown in Figure 11. What is this list you see here? This list represents 11 different pre-set security configurations included with WSAS. These 11 configurations represent the most common scenarios for securing a Web Service. Whatever your security requirements are, it’s probably covered by one of them. Enabling any of them is trivial, just pick its radio button and continue. For example, let’s say we pick the “Sign and encrypt - TripleDES/RSA15 – DK” option then we’ll bring up the interface shown in Figure 12.

Notice that WSAS already has both a trusted certificate store and a keystore location provided to support encryption. The Management Console has a Keystore tab (on the left) that you can use to manage certificates and providers. Once you apply the security configuration, you can go back to the list of services and click on the Policy, as shown in Figure 13.

This will bring up the Policy, shown in Listing 3. The Policy is an extensible way to configure any/all of the WS-* technologies you have enabled for your service. Where did this Policy come from? It was generated by WSAS for you when you selected the Security Configuration. You can still manually edit this file either to tweak security or to configure your WS-Reliable Messaging policy.

In this article we’ve started with an Axis service, and very easily redeployed it to WSAS. All we needed was its WSDD deployment descriptor and a JAR of all its classes. We saw how WSAS made sure to maintain backwards compatibility with the original service, even though the original service used the deprecated RPC-encoding format. Once we brought our service into WSAS, we could easily enable WS-Security and WS-Reliable Messaging. Finally, WSAS made it especially easy to pick a powerful Security Configuration, automatically managing the Policy for us.
