i have one urgent problem is that validating input data on web service side for e.g compulsory fields,field length,field value etc.
Our application have one service which insert data into database by taking input from soap client. As soap client may be another application in any language. so no gui is available to validate input data.
We need to validate like compulsory fields,field length etc.
Tell me how i can do this easily rather than checking field by field validation.
You can validate your XML in "one shot" using XML Schema (XSD File)

if you use an api like XMLBeans, you can validate the data very easily.
