Passing Parameters to a Web Service

I am having a real big problem trying to figure out how to pass parameters to a web service.

The web service has a getCars request web method with 4 input parameters that are usr, pwd, domain & function.

I am using Axis2 1.5.4, and my code is below. When I call the method I get error returned, "org.apache.axis2.AxisFault: Tried to invoke method public java.lang.String,java.lang.String,int) with arguments null,null,null. The arguments do not match the signature." : -

I have tried passing parameters as per below, after line 4 above, but that has no effect: -

I would certainly be using SOAPui or TCPMON to see exactly what is being sent as your SOAP request.

Mathew, does this WebService offer you a WSDL? If it does you can then use Wsdl2java and then use the stubs generated for the connection and to set your parameters. Then you need not worry whether they are Attributes or Elements or what ever other syntax issue there may be.
I agree. Here's the link:
