Hi all,

I'm using Blackberry's JDE and i'm attempting to create an app which calls a web service ... retrieves data ... and displays a bar graph accordingly.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial that can help me create the code to call and consume a web service response? From what I've been reading, I can use Ksoap/ksoap2 but I've been unable to get this working as the JDE isn't able to import jar files and when I import the source files and attempt to build it (as suggested on the blackberry site) I'm still unable to.
So, if anyone could help me out with tutorials/suggestions i'd appreciate it.

Regards,
Eric

try the blackberry MDS studio.

I never used tried it yet, but I think let you scan a specified network for Web service, then you pick the services you want to use in your applications.

With a simple drag and drop it does the "plumbing" code to access the service via your device, you only need to do the high level code.

Hope it helps!
Pete
