Response from the SOAP server

Dear All,
In my quest to make a client communicate with a SOAP server in a SOAP-free manner, I am at a point where I can create my own XMLPayload as request(thereby saving maximum time a SOAP client spends) and sending it over HTTP. But once I get the response from the server, I am unable to process it and extract the required element.
I get a XML document as response from server. Can anyone tell me how to process it using place java(without using SOAP)?

If you are indeed getting a well formed XML document back from the server, then all standard XML processing techniques are available to you. You can treat the input stream from the response just like any other input stream and create a DOM or do SAX processing. If you are using SDK 1.4 you already have the required classes.
For minimum overhead you could just grab the whole thing to a String and search for the opening element tag.
I agree. Here's the link:
