Hi Friends,

I am working on webservices using Apache Axis.

Just wanted to know if there are some services that are exposed on the web.
Specifically I was looking for a service that can give me stock quotes.

Looking forward to your replies..

Hi!
Searching for the following terms: stock quotes web service wsdl
Returned the link to the WSDL of a web service you may be able to use:
http://www.webservicex.net/stockquote.asmx?WSDL
I haven't tested it myself, though.
Best wishes!

If you are looking for a WS that specifically returns stock quotes, shouldn't that be part of the search term?

@Ivan

http://www.webservicex.net/stockquote.asmx?WSDL its not a wsdl file.. Its a plain html file I guess..


@ulf

I tried that also .. Thats why I wrote etc etc.
And I am looking for any web service exposed online, specifically Stocks..

You guess wrong - it's a WSDL.

hmmm..

Ok I will try to work it out..

The wsdls that I have generally worked on are having tags like..

message, portType, bindings, service etc..

Its seems completely different..

What do you mean? It's a WSDL having XML tags like all others. Maybe you're viewing it with an application that hides those from you.

Ohhhh...

misunderstanding due to browser incompatibility...

In google chrome.. the link is showing some text only

Get Stock quote for a company Symbol Get Stock quote for a company Symbol Get Stock quote for a company Symbol

I opened it in IE, and it is rendering it as a proper wsdl file..

Thanks... Ulf, Ivan
