Inbound Sample

This example is taken from examples/ssl-server. It demonstrates how to configure inbound SSL.

				<serviceProxy port="443">
								password="secret" keyPassword="secret" />
								location="../../conf/membrane.jks" password="secret" />
					<wsdlRewriter protocol="https" />
					<target host="thomas-bayer.com" />

Outbound Sample

This example is taken from examples/ssl-client. It demonstrates how to configure outbound SSL.

				<serviceProxy port="8080">
					<target host="predic8.com" port="443">
						<ssl />
