An unsecured webservice was deployed with WebLogic 12.1.1 with a blank login config defined in weblogic-webservices.xml, and it could be accessed without giving security credential (as expected).
After Migration to WebLogic 1212, when accessing the same url, it asks for security credentials. One may login using any user (even a user without group) of the realm.
