Error while decryption of SOAPUI response- “Error Getting Response :null”

In SOAPUI in many cases when we apply the wss keystore for decryption it hits error and shows message: “Error Getting Response :null”. But shows nothing in SOAPUI logs and blank output screen.

When you remove Incoming WSS it shows the encrypted response. To solve this you can try below steps:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.3.0\lib
  2. Rename wss4j-1.6.16.jar to wss4j-1.6.16.jar.old
  3. Copy wss4j-1.6.2.jar from same location for SoapUI 4.5 to this folder.

You can down load wss4j jars from :

Some other jar versions also may work.

You may still face issue with decryption then check the logs at: C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.3.0\bin\soapui.log. In case it’s showing “ Illegal key size” error that suggests that JCE error due few jar files are missing from installation.

This issue can be resolved by installing the Oracle® Java JCE unlimited strength jars. These jars can be downloaded from the following links depending on which Java version you are using:

To verify the JRE used by SOAPUI, open C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.3.0\jre\release in notepad and download JCE unlimited strength jar for respective version from above links. Extract downloaded files at: C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.3.0\jre\lib\security.

Restart SOAPUI and try.
