Hi, I have a SOAP interface developed with the WS facility of the Knopflerfish OSGi container, and I have some thin clients that gathers data from it. My necessity is to keep the client as small as possible (ideally 100-200k), but using Axis 1.4 I have to include 1.7 Mb of libraries (notice that I can't use, for example, CXF because it doesn't like the WSDL format that KF produces - it's old, or something like this).
Is there a "lighter" way? A smaller library? I don't need anything too dynamic - just always the same calls to the exposed methods. Or could you give me a hint on how to write the "basic" http call, and parse the response?
Thanks for your attention, I searched the net for a long time, so I resolved to disturb you.
