Symptoms


When attempting to call a two-way SSL REST-ful web service using HTTP Binding,
the following error occurs.

[2013-09-26T10:38:33.557-07:00] [soa_server1] [WARNING] [] [oracle.integration.platform.blocks.soap] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: weblogic] [ecid: 947e15883c16bc3a:-4223c808:141524e818f:-8000-000000000000c7d9,1:27853] [APP: soa-infra] [composite_instance_id: 50001] [composite_name: name] [component_name: name] Unable to invoke endpoint URI "https://.../financial/v1/testservice.xml" successfully due to: Unable to invoke endpoint URI "https://.../financial/v1/testservice.xml" successfully due to: java.net.ProtocolException: Missing WWW-Authenticate header.

Please note that the web service does not require authentication (username/password) just the SSL certificates therefore the "java.net.ProtocolException: Missing WWW-Authenticate header" error doesn't make sense.

Another potential error is:
