hi folks.. i had a web service, which will take name as a parameter and returns the greeting to that name.. In one machine i got tomcat and axis.. when i run the WS, on the machine where axis n tomcat are installed, using command prompt, its executing..
o/p:: Hi!sathya welcome to WS
Where dev is the folder containing Client1
now i want to use the WS from different machine.. i dont know how to use the webservice from a client end.. what r all the tools needed at the client end to run the WS.... and also i would like to use browser instead of dos prompt.. any suggestions in this regard are greatly appreciated..
ok - i think you may have skipped a few chapters of the intro to web services - clients tend to be other programs not browsers. i find the best way to develop is to use the wsdl2Java tool - write the wsdl to define your web service and then use wsdl2Java to code generate java for your client and server end-points.
