SOAP in an applet or servlet ?

Hi,
I have written a client to a webservice as a stand-alone Java application. I would now like to make the same web based.
My question is :
1. Can the SOAP functions work from a servlet?
2. Can the SOAP functions work from an applet (If I use Swing for my GUI) ?
Thanks,
Anoop

Sure - in fact the Apache SOAP package has several examples
"2. Can the SOAP functions work from an applet (If I use Swing for my GUI) ?"
A SOAP message is just plain HTML so there is no reason an applet could not talk to a SOAP server - remember you would have to make the XML parser available to the applet. Swing or not-Swing makes no difference.
Loads of SOAP references at: http://www.lanw.com/books/javasoap/soapref.htm
