I have to implement web service and i'm using Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web developers (Indigo release), JAX-WS and Apache CXF 2.4. My web service must support collecting files from client (zip archiva) then process that files and send result to server over network, which will not be implement on same machine. Relation client-web service is easy and i already implemented, but problem is relation web service-server. Is it possible to implement web service to work like client, i.e after processing files to communicate with server program on other machine and work as client? I'm a newbie in this and sorry if i'm asking you stupid questions Smile

Welcome to JavaRanch (seeing that this is your first post)!
Yes, it is possible that the server receiving the files in the ZIP archive plays the role of a client when interacting with another server.
It can also be accomplished using web services or FTP or anything else you find suitable.
