I've developed a SAAJ client which sends out a XML file as an attachment. I've verified that the file does get attached, by printing out the entire SOAP on the client-side.
However, the receiving service does not get the attachment. Also, it is returning a fault to the client.
The endpoint reference (EPR) for the Operation not found is http://localhost:9081/SAAJTesting/DataReceiverService and the WSA Action = null. If this EPR was previously reachable, please contact the server administrator.
On the client side, I tried setting the content type "text/xml". But the client throws an exception (SEVERE: SAAJ0540: Error during saving a multipart message). So, I have to set it to "text/plain".
On the service side, I'm using a Handler (which implements SOAPHandler<SOAPMessageContext>) to extract the attachment. The endpoint webmethod does no processing (as everything is done in the handler).
Was wondering if someone could point me to a simple SAAJ client & service example so that I could figure out what is going wrong here.
However, I also need the source code of a web service implementation which processes a SOAP attachment using SAAJ. Having both the client and service source code would be great as that would help me understand the end-to-end mechanism.
BTW, I'm using WAS 7.0 to host the service endpoint & the SOAP handler.

The WebServicesFaq points to an article that shows SAAJ attachments in action.
