I need to send a string of data from my Java application to a VB.NET web service. Where do I begin?

One possibility would be to go to xml.apache.org and download the current AXIS package.
Another would be to go to TheMindElectric web site and download the GLUE package - I suspect you would find it easier to use than AXIS

I should of also stated that the application that I am supporting is using NetDynamics with JDK1.1.7A. Does SOAP, AXIS, GLUE work with a JDK that is this old?

I suspect all of the toolkits I mentioned are using at least SDK 1.2 and probably 1.3.
You could work with one of those kits on a system that does have the correct SDK until you can figure out what the SOAP message should look like, what the responses will look like, etc - then fake the message in your real application by putting together strings.
I wrote a utility to capture the message text between client and server - see
my SOAP book page
and download the utility from the link at the bottom.

Hey, thanks for the link to your SOAP book pages. Looks like some very useful stuff!
You mentioned Glue above - what's your take on it? Everything I've read and played with seems very positive, and I'd like to find an opportunity to get it in-house for serious trials. My current project uses some JAXB stuff to build a SOAP client and it seems far more complex than it needs to be.


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
