Hello experts - I have a File -> PI -> SOAP RCV async scenario.

The WS being reached at the target is HTTPS and the certificate chain was imported in TrustedCAs view.

I'm using AXIS at the SOAP RCV channel in order to encapsulate WSSE UsernameToken and Password in the SOAP Envelope.

The issue is, whenever any message is sent I get the following error at the receiver.


Axis: fatal error in invocation: java.lang.IllegalAccessError: tried to access method<init>([Ljava/security/cert/X509Certificate;)V (class loader, resolved from class (class loader

Can anyone cast some light on what am I missing?

Few facts that might be relevant:

  • XIAxisAdapter/MessageServlet is green for all required components (details below)
  • XPI Inspector shows the certificate chain ok, but I simply deleted the certificates from TrustedCAs and updated/activated the channel and restarted SSL Provider. The same error persist. Unless it's necessary to restart Java, it seems the error is happening before the Certificate chain validation.

Just cross check whether the Jar files required for AXIS are imported.Below Link can be also useful for debugging

Hey Raghuraman - thank you for your feedback.

I ended up using XSLT to fulfill my need. Accodingly to SAP, I'd need to upgrade a component version in order to fix that AXIS certificate chain validation.

The XSLT code I used was:

<?xml version="1.0"

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""
 <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" />    
 <xsl:attribute-set name="attr-soap">   
  <xsl:attribute name="soapenv:mustUnderstand">1</xsl:attribute>  
 <xsl:attribute-set name="attr-pasw">    
  <xsl:attribute name="Type">
 <xsl:template match="/">    
    <xsl:element name="wsse:Security"
     <xsl:element name="wsse:UsernameToken">
      <xsl:element name="wsse:Username">user</xsl:element>          
      <xsl:element name="wsse:Password" use-attribute-sets="attr-pasw">password</xsl:element>                        
      <xsl:copy-of select="*"/>
