C++ client connecting to a JAX-RPC web service

I would like to build a Web Service using JAX-RPC, and I need both a Java client and a C++ client.
For being able to connect a C++ client to the web service I need an XML-RPC implementation in C++. Is anybody familiar/experienced in using such C++ tools/libraries? Could you recommend any of them and/or with some examples?
Thanks,
Miki

If you're really talking about XML-RPC, then you should take a look at the implementations page at xmlrpc.com. However, that's a different protocol altogether so you won't be able to communicate with JAX-RPC.

Koskela,
Thanks for the info. But then how can I build a C++ client that connecs to a Web Service built with JAX-RPC?

You get your hands on the WSDL published for the web service, find a SOAP client library for C++, and start writing the client against the WSDL. The fact that the WSDL is JAX-RPC "compatible" has no significance from the client's point of view.
gSOAP is probably a good candidate.

Koskela,
Thanks. I just figured out that indeed I need a SOAP client library for connecting to the web service. It seems that
sqldata is also a good candidate.
Thanks again is clear now,
Miki
