Hi,

Am very new to web services (about 3 days now!!).

Have been running through a basic example i found on the net, however when i come to test the web service i get the following message:



Can anybody give me any ideas what this means, and how i might go about fixing it. Have followed the example religously and can't work out why mine fails.

Am developing in Oracle 10g 10.1.3 and deploying into OC4J, if that is of any use.

Regards

Simon

Try posting meaningful topic name and avoid capital letters.

Sunil was pointing out that a meaningful subject line will help you get answers, usless shouting messages less so.

Can you paste some or all of the request message? It seams to hint that the soap body is missing, which it may be, or it may also be a namespace issue.

point taken

ok, where will i find the reuest message?

like i said i am very new to this, have just copied in an example to see a web service running, and trying to figure out what it's all about.

the example i followed was taken from here:

On the site you mentioned, there is a section called Deploying and Testing the Web Service, point #3 shows the cursor over a button called 'Preview SOAP'. If you can get this far, hopefully it will show you the message you are about to send to your web service. Same again for point #7

ok, when i'm running it i don't get the 'Preview SOAP', just 'Invoke'.

Any ideas why that might be?

maybe i should just look for a better example elsewhere

I haven't used this particular tool so I have no idea
The Eclipse WTP (web tools platform) version has a number of WS related tutorials you might want to have a quick look at.

I'd recommend
Creating Web Services with Apache Axis - not because it uses Axis, but because its relatively easy to follow.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
