Hi,

I am new to the web services technology.

I am trying to call .NET webservices from Java. The web service provider provides two URL with .asmx and .ashx extension. I am able to hit the URL in browser with eg, https://hostname/service.ashx?WSDL but not with eg,https://hostname/service.asmx?WSDL file. why??.

1. can anybody say how the diference between .asmx and .ashx files service?

2. When I call the web service from location file (Java) with Soap_address as .ashx or .asmx , the connection reset error is logged in the console. what would be the reason? can anybody help me on this?

Appreciate your help

Thanks,
Alice
