AXIS XML calling .Net Web Service


Joined: Sep 23, 2003

I am attempting to call a very basic "HelloWorld" .Net WS using AXIS. The XML submitted from my AXIS client looks like

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
<ns1:HelloWorld soapenv:encodingStyle="" xmlns:ns1="">
<p_name xsi:type="xsd:string">John</p_name>

While this invokes the service it does not seem to pass the parameter in. I assumed this was because the p_name parameter was not qualified so when I manually modify the XML to

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soap="">
<ns1:HelloWorld xmlns:ns1="">
<ns1 _name xsi:type="xsd:string">John</ns1 _name>

and submit this via a SOAP Tool I have it works fine. My question is how do I qualify the parameter with the ns1: qualification in code?

Also do child entities not inherit the namespace of their parent? i.e. Should the p_name parameter need qualification? (obviously it does but I don't really understand why)

Any help greatly appreciated.

String ret = (String) call.invoke( new Object[] { new String("John") } );

System.out.println("Sent 'John!', got '" + ret + "'");

I agree. Here's the link:
