SOLUTION: running a SOAP Client (AXIS) in Domino

Hello everyone,

I stumbled upon this thread a few months after it was posted, being faced with the exact same task: to make an AXIS-generated SOAP client run in a Domino 6 Agent. Here's what I did to make it work in the end. Please bear in mind that the precise steps may vary for a servlet implementation or a SOAP client of a different origin, but it might provide useful hints anyway. Here goes:

-- JAR files --: copy all JARs needed by the AXIS client to the (Domino program dir)/jvm/lib/ext directory. These are:
(your generated SOAP client classes).jar

Backgrounder: the code located in this directory enjoys unrestricted security access, according to the standard settings in the java.policy file (more on this below)

-- XML4j.jar --: replace the XML4j.jar file located in the Domino program directory by a newer DOM parser implementation, e.g. Apache Xerces ( This probably violates the Domino support warranty as you are exchanging a standard Domino component. It is necessary though as your code will refer to this file for DOM classes :-(

-- JVM security settings --: modify the java.policy file located in (Domino program dir)/jvm/lib/security to include this line inside the grant {} block:

permission java.util.PropertyPermission "java.protocol.handler.pkgs", "write";

This will soften a JVM security restriction as needed by the AXIS code.

Now restart your server and give it a go.
This is what did it for me. I am hopeful that most if not all Web Service client functionality can be exploited on Domino that way.
For a more sounder sleep, go for WebSphere.

Hope this proves helpful to someone.
