Dear All

I wondered whether someone could lead me to a good tuturial or some sample

I'm trying to write some web services using the eclipse platform and wtp

I need the client web service to create a SOAP header - from my server-side
web service, when i create the methods and the wsdl file, how do i tell the
client it must create a SOAP header.

Is any other web service test tool there which can allow me edit SOAP header on client side?

Thanks for any help

XMLSpy has some functionality let you send SOAP request, if you want to test your web service you should deploy it and write client for it yourself.

After you create some services of your own then you might probably want to hit some real world services (free of cost)..for that you might go for

A good starting tutorial for WEB SERVICES is
