Secure storage remote access


I'm trying to implement a simple java standalone application that will connect to a J2EE instance, get a handle on "ts~sec~securestorage~service" and use it like described in Examples for Using Secure Storage Interfaces and Classes - J2EE Technology in SAP Web Application Server - SAP Library

The problem is with this code, I can connect properly, I can do a ctx.list(""), walk through the list and verify that "ts~sec~securestorage~service" is existing. But when I do a ctx.lookup("ts~sec~securestorage~service") it returns a null object.

As I'm connecting from outside the JVM I'm setting up the Context with additional information like p4 connection, user, credentials as described in this page Creating an Initial Context - Developing Java EE 5 Applications - SAP Library

Could you elaborate on what the cause could be ?

Thanks in advance !

Full code here,





import javax.naming.Context;

import javax.naming.InitialContext;

import java.util.Hashtable;


import javax.naming.NameClassPair;

import javax.naming.NamingEnumeration;

import javax.naming.NamingException;

public class decryptor


    public static void main(String[] args)

    throws UnsupportedEncodingException, Exception


    String connectionString = "sapserver:50004";

    java.util.Properties p = new java.util.Properties();

    p.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "");

    p.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, connectionString);

    p.put("force_remote", "true");

    p.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "Administrator");

    p.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "***********");

    Context ctx = new InitialContext(p);

    NamingEnumeration<NameClassPair> list = ctx.list("");

    String service_name;

    String svc = "";

    while (list.hasMore()) {

        service_name =;

        if (service_name.contains("securestorage~service")) {

             System.out.println("Found service "+service_name+" in ctx.list()");

             svc = service_name;




    Object o = ctx.lookup(svc);

    if (o == null) {

        System.out.println("secure storage service not started<br>");


    else {

        SecureStorageRuntimeInterface secStore = null;

        RemoteSecureStorageClientContextInterface myContext = null;

        secStore = (SecureStorageRuntimeInterface)o;

        myContext = secStore.getSecureStorageClientContext();

        // do something with myContext here...
