Hi all,

Can you distinguish SOAP-RPC and JAX-RPC ? Are they the same ?

Thanks very much :-)

SOAP-RPC refers to the act of performing RPC calls through a SOAP-based WS. As such, it is a generic term, and any number of languages and APIs can be used to implement it.

JAX-RPC is a Java API for WS, and can be used to implement SOAP-RPC, amongst other things. It is now deprecated in favor of the newer JAX-WS.

I have run the example in my book ( in SOAP-RPC chapter ). It has something like that :

org.apache.soap.rpc.Call call = new org.apache.soap.rpc.Call ( );

Is it APACHE API for RPC ?

Yes. The org.apache.soap.rpc package is an implementation of SOAP-RPC used by the Apache SOAP project. Note that this project was made obsolete a long time ago by Apache Axis. Instead of trying to learn it you should focus on Axis, which has many benefits over SOAP (the project, not the XML).
