Interacting with a .NET webservice

I'm new to web services and I think I'm missing something big here.

I'm able to hit a webservice which was created in .NET. They are returning an ADODB recordset and I just don't know what to do with it.

How do I access the data that's been returned? Does it have something to do with deserializing it?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Thomas,

I don't know exactly what you are trying to do but here are a couple of statements that (i hope) could help you.

- ADODB Recordset is a .net datatype. As far as I know, there is no way Java for a Java program to convert this .Net type into a Java one automatically.
Thus you Java Web Service engine would need a specific (de)serializer to be able to understand what a .Net Recordset is

- If your .Net web service returns a Recorset Datatype, then it sounds like it is using RCP/Encoded technology (A I wrong here ??), ie, strong typing.
This encoding style (RPC/Encoded)is not the good one to promote interoperability. You need to exchange only XML data, which means Document/Literal web service, based on a wsdl and a document schema.

- has a couple of statements about interoperability. You should try to read it (
