SOAP connector and Inter-Process Communications connector properties files

Use the soap.client.props file to set properties for the SOAP connector and the ipc.client.props file to set properties for the Inter-Process Communications (IPC) connector. Most of the properties in the ipc.client.props file have corresponding properties in the soap.client.props file.

The SOAP connector properties file...

The IPC connector properties file...

The following table provides basic information on the various properties. Read the properties files to obtain more detailed information.

SOAP connector properties IPC connector properties Description
com.ibm.SOAP.securityEnabled com.ibm.IPC.securityEnabled Specifies enablement of security for the connector. Set the property to true to enable security.
com.ibm.SOAP.authenticationTarget com.ibm.IPC.authenticationTarget Type of authentication for the connector if security is enabled. We can specify BasicAuth for basic authentication. If no value is specified, basic authentication is used.
com.ibm.SOAP.loginUserid com.ibm.IPC.loginUserid User ID for the connector if security is enabled, and we do not enter a user ID through a command prompt or standard in.
com.ibm.SOAP.loginPassword com.ibm.IPC.loginPassword Password for the connector if security is enabled, and we do not enter a password through a command prompt or standard in.
com.ibm.SOAP.loginSource com.ibm.IPC.loginSource Specifies automatic prompting for the user ID and password when specified prompt. Prerequisites for using this property are discussed in the properties file for the particular connector.
com.ibm.SOAP.requestTimeout com.ibm.IPC.requestTimeout How long in seconds the connector waits for a server response. The property for the SOAP connector and the property for the IPC connector are each initially set to 180 in their respective properties files.
com.ibm.ssl.alias com.ibm.ssl.alias The alias to use for an SSL configuration for client connections. The value of the alias is what you want it to be.

timeToExpiration Time in seconds that connections can be idle in the connection pool. Beyond this time the connections are purged. The initial setting for the property is 360.

Many of the system management commands contain implicit stop server operations. Most of these commands use the IPC connector properties configuration. However, some commands, such as the stopServer, stopNode, and stopManager commands, continue to use the SOAP connector properties configuration for compatibility reasons. Thus, to avoid additional user ID and password prompts, specify the user ID and password information in both the soap.client.props and ipc.client.props files.
