Re: how can you tell an endpoint is valid - client sent me WSDL but said do not use endpoint in WSDL

I can see how they could make use of your info. I think I am getting into a topic I hope I will not regret. The SSL.exception threw me off because apparently you received that exception. When I got that exception it was from not having the certificate and key that the server side must provide me in order for me to test their REST API. Otherwise I notify the people involved and twiddle my thumbs. 

 

I suspect the WSDL is when you are making yourself a web service - a server, and the endpoint is possibly a client in the client/server sense after all. That would make sense that you need to send your credentials to the client. But the SSL.Exception threw me off. I think this exception might be possible if you are a web service. I have not tried the WSDL examples that ReadyAPI gave me.

 

Seems that both you and I are missing some information. Hopefully someone else from the SoapUI community can be of better help.

I was doing some looking. Perhaps the version of TLS is 1.0 on one and and 1.2 on the other.

 

see for example https://community.smartbear.com/t5/SoapUI-Open-Source/Solved-SSL-Handshake-exception-calling-a-secur...

Hi Richie,

No i have not. Issue remains - i substitute the "new" endpoint , but do not succeed in reaching the webservice i am trying to consume. If you are interested, i can send you the logs generated when i attempt this.

 

thanks much

Al

Yes please.

 

I'm never used certificate authentication in soapui - so I don't know how much help I can be - but I've got a similar setup in one of my projects (hitting a 3rd party's endpoint) to what you've described so a trawl through your logs and a comparison of mine might help to point us in the right direction.

 

Cheers,
