I’ve been playing around with Native Oracle XML DB Web Services in Oracle 11g Release 1 for a while and I’ve finally decided to release the article.
One of the reasons it’s been on the back burner for some time is I’ve been having trouble with the anonymous access configuration. I’ve still not got this sorted, but I decided to open it up and leave that section as a work in progress. I’ll keep looking at it and update that section if I get a satisfactory solution.
Update: I received the following quote on Metalink from the “Global Technical Lead XML Database”:
“Anonymous access to web services is not possible. Direct PL/SQL access without authentication would be a massive security hole.”
