Response sender


The response sender defines the security requirements of the SOAP response message. The security handler acts on the security constraints defined for the response in the IBM extension deployment descriptors, located in the ibm-webservices-ext.xmi file and the bindings, located in the ibm-webservices-bnd.xmi file. The security handler signs, encrypts, or generates the time stamp for the SOAP response message before the response is send to the caller.

The security constraints that apply to the SOAP response message must match the security requirements defined in the response receiver. Otherwise, the response is rejected by the response receiver (caller).
