Hi,
I m new to webservices. I m accesing a webservice by manually coding the client (soap connections). How do I make sure that the connections are not created for each transaction? Is there a client side setup to make sure that the soap connections are pooled or reused?

// Create the connection

SOAPConnectionFactory scf = SOAPConnectionFactory.newInstance();

SOAPConnection conn = scf.createConnection();


thanks

Hi "b jr",

Welcome to the JavaRanch. There aren't many rules around here, however adherence to the JavaRanch Naming Policy is one of them. The display name b jr does not comply with that policy. Please adjust your display name. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Web services use HTTP as their transport. HTTP is a connectionless protocol. The web service client sends a SOAP request inside of an HTTP request and gets its SOAP response within the HTTP response. So there are no connections to pool.
Transactions between the web service client and web service can only be coordinated through additional protocols like WS-Transaction, support of which is likely limited to the commercial super-platforms (IBM Websphere, BEA Weblogic, Oracle Application Server, etc.).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
