Migrate the JAX-RPC server-side extensions configuration
We can migrate the Web Services Security server-side extensions configuration for a Java EE Version 1.3 application to a Java EE Version 1.4 application for JAX-RPC.
The following table lists the mappings for the top-level sections under the server-side Security Extensions tab within an assembly tool from a Java EE Version 1.3 application to a Java EE Version 1.4 application.

Consider the following steps to migrate the server-side extensions from a Java EE Version 1.3 application to a Java EE Version 1.4 application. These steps are dependent upon the specific configuration.
- Import the Java EE Version 1.3 application into an assembly tool and identify all the message parts required to be signed and encrypted. The message parts are listed in the Required Integrity and Required Confidentiality sections under the Request Receiver Service Configuration Details section. In a Java EE Version 1.4 application, these message parts map to the Message parts field of the Required integrity and Required confidentiality dialogs windows within the assembly tool.
To specify these message parts within an assembly tool...in the Web Services Editor. The steps are based on typical scenarios, but the steps are not all-inclusive.
For example, if the message part in the Java EE Version 1.3 application is body, specify body in the Message parts keyword field. Similarly, on the Extensions tab, configure the message parts to be encrypted using the Required Confidentiality dialog. Also, for all the message parts that are migrated from a Java EE Version 1.3 application, you must select http://www.ibm.com/websphere/webservices/wssecurity/dialect-was in the Message parts dialect field and Required in the Usage type field.
- Click the Extensions tab.
- Navigate to the Required integrity subsection within the Request Consumer Service Configuration Details section.
- Specify each message part to be signed in the Message Parts field.
- Optional: Configure the Required Security Token and Caller Part sections on the Extensions tab if the authentication method of BasicAuth is configured under the Login Config section of the Java EE Version 1.3 application. When you configure the Required Security Token section, select Username in the name field and Required in the Usage type field within the Required Security Token Dialog window. The following table shows how the authentication method values for a Java EE Version 1.3 application map to the token type values within the Java EE Version 1.4 application.
to token type mappings. Use the extensions configurationIf the authentication method value is IDAssertion within the Login Config section, the token type that specify in the Java EE Version 1.4 application depends upon the IDType value within the IDAssertion section. The following table shows how the IDType values for Java EE Version 1.3 application map to the token type values in the Java EE Version 1.4 application.
Login Config Authentication method values in the Java EE Version 1.3 extensions configuration Token type values in the Java EE Version 1.4 extensions configuration BasicAuth UsernameToken Signature X509 certificate LTPA LTPAToken
IDType values in the Java EE Version 1.3 application extensions configuration Token type values in the Java EE Version 1.4 application extensions configuration X509Certificate X509 certificate Username Username
- Select the appropriate token type in the Name field of the Call Part Dialog window based on the previous two tables. Select the Username token type when we are configuring the caller part for the basic authentication method. Configuring the other token types in the Caller part dialog is similar to configuring token types in the Required Security Token dialog. If we need to map the IDAssertion authentication method from a Java EE Version 1.3 application to a Java EE Version 1.4 application, select the Use IDAssertion option and configure the ID assertion section of the Caller Part Dialog window. The Trust Mode field under the IDAssertion section maps to the Trust method name field of the Trust method property section in the Caller Part Dialog window. If Signature is selected for the Trust method, specify the Required Integrity part that specifies the signature of the trusted intermediary certificate.
- Configure a nonce in the v8.5 Binding Configurations section if nonce is specified in the Add Authentication Method dialog under Login Config within the Java EE Version 1.3 application extensions configuration.
Important: Nonce is configured in the bindings for a Java EE Version 1.4 application and not in the extensions.
- Configure the Add Timestamp section to migrate the time stamp information if the <addReceivedTimestamp> element is configured in the Java EE Version 1.3 extensions. To migrate the Response Sender Service Configuration Details section in the Java EE Version 1.3 extensions, identify all of the message parts listed within the Integrity and Confidentiality sections. Configure these message parts using the Integrity and Confidentiality dialogs under the Response Generator Service Configuration details section. This configuration is similar to the configuration for Required Integrity and Required Confidentiality, with the exception of the Order field in the Integrity Dialog. The value of this Order field specifies the order in which the message parts specified in the Message Parts field are digitally signed or encrypted in the SOAP message. For example, the extensions contain the following information:
- One integrity entry called int_part1 with a value of 1 in the Order field
- One confidentiality entry called conf_part1 with a value of 2 in the Order field
In this example, the message parts specified by the int_part1 integrity entry are signed before the message parts specified by the conf_part1 confidentiality entry are encrypted. The same rule for the order attribute applies for multiple integrity or confidentiality elements.
ResultsThese steps describe the types of information that we need to migrate the Web Services Security server-side extensions for a Java EE Version 1.3 application to a Java EE Version 1.4 application.
