Invoking WebService Implemented using VB 6.0 from a Java/J2EE Client
Joined: Apr 03, 2003
Hi All I want to invoke a web service(WSDL) which is implemented using VB 6.0 and MS SOAP Toolkit 3.0 from the Java/J2EE Client. JAX-RPC defines three different ways to invoke web services from a Java Platform. 1.) Stub 2.) Dynamic Proxy 3.) DII
I m wondering which method to using for this invokation. Stub can not be used for obvious reason, I am also not able to use Dynamic Proxy and DII. Is there anyone who have invoked VB 6.0 Web Service from the Java/J2EE Client???

What's the "obvious" reason you can't use stubs? Am I missing something?
If you have a WSDL, you can run any old mapping tool (Axis wsdl2java, Weblogic clientgen, JWSDP wscompile etc) over it, and access it via the Java stubs.
All those tools implement JAX-RPC to a greater or lesser extent.
