I am a newbie to Webservices. I am using Apache Axis 1.0 on Tomcat 4.0. I have just deployed my first Web Service. I had a query,
1) I have a Single WebService exposing different methods which will be receiving XML string from Client. 2) The XML should confirm to respective Schema (Order.xsd and Invoice.xsd). 3) I am exposing different methods for the Create/Read/Update/Delete Operations on these. <code> e.g. createOrder(orderDetails : String), </code> here orderDetails is an XML I receive from the Client. 4) I need to validate these against respective Schema before coverting them to a bean using Castor generated objects.
My Query:- 1) Can Axis Convert the XML String directly to an Object which I have generated using Castor, instead of me validating and converting to a bean assuming the Client doesnt validate the XML . The Castor Source Generator generates a host of Class and Class Descriptr Files too.
