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 SCJP 1.4
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? Miki

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
