Hi all,

I have a webservice for encrypting a password such as that provided by the method doProcess() in MyClient class below. Currently this method processes a soap message(not shown in the code snippet) containing the plain text password and prints out the encrypted password to the console using "System.out" as shown by method process() in class EncryptionHandler below.

Now, what I want to do is instead of printing the encrypted password to the console, I want to print it out to a file. As you can see method doProcess() takes an "OutputStream" as one of its arguments. Can anyone tell me how to use one of the sub-classes of OutputStream to print out the encrypted password to a file? I am not that familiar with webservices, so I don't know how the class javax.xml.transform.Transformer works in transforming an input into an output. I hope to receive a quick reply from you experts of Java Web Services.

Thank you.

regards,
sbk

Transformer transformer = transFactory.newTransformer(new StreamSource(is));

transformer.transform(new StreamSource(in), new StreamResult(out));
}

public class EncryptionHandler

MyClient eclient = new MyClient();
