Hi,

I would like to know if the Soap message is simply a string that is converted into a byte array and sent across the Http or is it a SOAP Object which is then serialized into a Byte array. Lets say for instance, I have the following code.



This returns me the complete SOAP Message. For example
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope..
...
><SOAP-ENV:Envelope/>
and I convert the String to a byte array,



I have sent this byte message to a Web service consumer using a http connection and seen a proper response coming back. So I assume the message can simple be a string which then gets converted into a byte array.
We don't really have to convert the message to a SOAPMessage ??.

Please let me know if my understanding is correct.

A "SOAP message" is just an XML-based group of text characters organized in a specifc way. It is not a Java object.
A programmer can create a "SOAP message" with shell script commands, a text editor, COBOL code, Java code, Perl code, etc.
When a "SOAP message" is sent it is converted to bytes. The XML-based text is converted to bytes, not a Java object.



These statements are code that help create "SOAP messages." They are not the required for anything and simply present one option for generating a "SOAP message" with an object-oriented program.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
