Configuration


The user name and password values used to log into the Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 software are the same values used to log into the WSRP 1.0 Beta software.

Troubleshooting


Description: The WSDL URL always points to localhost and port 8080, how do I change it?
Workaround: The edit option of the WSRP Consumer and WSRP Producer admin portlets provide options to change these default values.

Description: I am unable to edit the WSRP remote portlet. This option is either disabled or is unavailable.
Workaround: Some WSRP producer implementations do not allow the edit option for unauthenticated users. The WSRP 1.0 Beta testdriver does not provide options to edit a portlet for unauthenticated users. You can edit the options for the remote portlets by logging in to the test driver using the sign-in option.
