I'm actually having a little fun with it. I put some additional services in my Tower: SignGuestBook ReadGuestBook RandomThought
[ May 01, 2002: Message edited by: Carl Trusiak ] Hey do you think people would be interested in seeing my picture? I could have a Service that returns one or returns a url to it. [ May 01, 2002: Message edited by: Carl Trusiak ]
Wow. I just went over there and had a look. What a great way of running a tutorial, it really sucks you in! They try and convince you that you need to install and use their own web-services broker, but I couldn't manage to download it, so have done the first couple of calls using GLUE from themindelectric.com with no problems. Web services are supposed to be about portability ! I'll try and progress a bit further this evening. And I'm "efficacy"
I have task 4 done. There is one problem with XML Bus generated client. It throws a Serializer exception when trying to create the response object from my Dig method. I use the -debug option and can see the soap response message and it appears to be correct. In fact, clients created that are based on Apache SOAP or AXIS, work properly for everything. I sent a message to Iona Support, hopefully they can figure it out.

This issue turned out to be a bug in Axis beta 2. It was forming the SOAP Response message incorrectly. I upgraded to the latest nightly build of Axis and my task works perfectly. It includes a complex type and a nested complex type. If you are a part of the Challenge, come and visit me. Cat's Realm! [ May 19, 2002: Message edited by: Carl Trusiak ]
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
