Hi,

I'm building a C# web service (whatever, that could be in java anyway) and I just realized that I need to send something similar to a hashtable (similar to the hashmap in java) as a response to my web service consumer.


Will that simply work?

As I'm new to the web service world, there might be a trick that I'm not yet aware of.

If it will not work, do you guys have a suggestion on how I could build something similar to a hashtable manually?

Thank you.

Hi!
If you want to test whether your web service conforms to the WS-I Basic Profile (conformance will facilitate interoperability), then you can use the WS-I testing tool that is embedded in soapUI or that can be downloaded separately to examine the WSDL of your web service.
To be more interoperable, I would use an array of items where each item contains a key and a value. If you have a multi-value hashmap, then each item need to contain a key and a list of values.
Hope this helps!
