I am using delphi 7, download evaluation version of secureblack box and how to call web service interface using TElHTTPSClient component in secure black box or any other component and
i am having wsdl file also. Pls tell me how to attach valid certificate and how to create valid certificate from server & client side.

This is my sample code
  HTTPClient := TElHTTPSClient.Create(nil);
  TSPClient := TElHTTPTSPClient.Create(nil);
  Cert := TElX509Certificate.Create(nil);
  TSPClient.HttpClient := HTTPClient;
  TSPClient.URL := 'https://vpmsample:8449/Demo/services/MainService;
  HTTPClient.SSLEnabled := true;

  TSPClient.HashAlgorithm := SB_ALGORITHM_DGST_SHA1;
  Cert := TElX509Certificate.Create(nil);
  F := TFileStream.Create('D:\sampleService\client.cer', fmOpenRead or fmShareDenyWrite);
  FCertStorage := TElMemoryCertStorage.Create(nil);
  HTTPClient.CertStorage := FCertStorage;

    on e: exception do

Note : i am getting error as 'connection failed due to error(73729)'

The code you have written makes no sense. TElHTTPTSPClient is a timestamping protocol client, it's not related to HTTP/HTTPS in any way. Please see samples in <SecureBlackbox>\Samples folder for example of how to use HTTP client component.

About certificates:

when you connect using HTTPS, the server sends it's certificate which you have to validate in OnCertificateValidate (see samples again). IF (and only if) you need to authenticate on the server using certificate, you need to use OnCertificateNeededEx event or set ClientCertStorage property (see samples). The certificate for client-side authentication is usually provided by server administrators, so you don't need to create your own certificates.

1. Your license includes free upgrade to SecureBlackbox 12. We have updated our records and information on our web site. You will find your new license key and downloads in My Control Center ( https://www.eldos.com/cc/ ).

2. Your license covers only HTTPS and SSL. There exist two options for you:
a) use some SOAP client component that can work via pluggable transport (Delphi's Built-in THTTPRIO can't do this). I can recommend RemObjects SDK
b) use the SOAP client included with SecureBlackbox 12, but for this you need a license for XMLBlackbox package of SecureBlackbox *in addition* to the license you have.

On a side note, your question is not related to the topic. In future you are welcome to post questions as new one rather than answer to old topics.

Sincerely yours

You are welcome to test all the functionality you need first. The evaluation version on https://www.eldos.com/sbb/download-release.php includes a trial key which you can use for testing.

For SOAP functionality you would need XMLBlackbox package. The price depends on different licensing options. You can calculate the price and buy the license online on https://www.eldos.com/sbb/calc.php

But before purchasing a license please do perform the test to ensure that the components offer what you need.

Okay thanks,

Please can you give me exactly what i have to pay for the XML... additional functionality. i can use the calculator, i have no references on what i paid.. just make it simple.

Also, the wsdl is SOAP plus https, hope there is an adequate sample in the new release for that.

Thanks in advance.
