Description From 2008-01-04 11:34:56
(see patch URL)

Don't require secure envelope on response

  - since this is an https connection, the deployment does not see the need to
encode the reply in a secure envelope.  The server trusts the client via secure
message (allowing for anonymous clients in the TLS connection) but assumes
client will trust response via its https configuration.

   - boils down to bypassing the consistency check in WSSecurityClientHandler
for the call

   - Introduces Constants.GSI_SEC_MSG_SECREPLY_UNECESSARY --> Boolean.TRUE
