When exposing a webservice using the "@WebServiceProvider" annotation, and protecting it with WSSE username token the WebServiceContext#userPrincipal is not set.
The WEB-INF/jboss-wsse-server.xml is configured as described here:
Although this does not really seem to be enough, as it is also required to have META-INF/standard-jaxws-endpoint-config.xml file with only the "Standard WSSecurity Endpoint" on the server to actually enforce the authentication of the username token.
- wstest.war: example war - exposing one webservice (compiled from the content of server.zip)
- server.zip: source for the wstest.war
- client.zip: simple client for the server, sending a username token.
Reproducing the problem:
1) deploy wstest.war to a jboss 5.1.0
2) open the run.sh in the client.zip, and set the JBOSS_5 to fit your installation. It the server is not listening on 8080, modify the url in the client source (WsExampleClient.java).
3) compile and run the client, by running ./run.sh
4) inspect the server log. If this says: "[INFO] Principal = null" we have the problem (expected principal = admin)
- service: server.zip:src/main/java/org/example/WsExample.java
- wsdl: server.zip:src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/wsdl
- wsse-config: server.zip:src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/jboss-wsse-server.xml
- wsse-config2: server.zip:src/main/webapp/META-INF/standard-jaxws-endpoint-config.xml
It seems that "wsse-config2" is required. If this is not present, it is possible for the client to send any client credentials it want (or leave them out) and it will still get admission to the service.
