Hi all,
I am supposed to write a webservice inorder to deliver an XML from my Java application. The targeted platform(client to whom m supposed to deliver the XML) has provided me a WSDL document. Does this mean that i would be acting as a consumer or caller to the the client ?. I was asked to use axis21.3 framework to do the same using SOAP protocol. what should be my basic steps?. Any examples or explanations or tutorial sites are most welcome.
I have also generated the Test client corresponding to my original app,using eclipse from which i was able to see my methods of my webservice and able to access the methods of the same in Web Browser . But since its an autogenerated stuff, i suspect its a JAX-RPC call, correct me if i am wrong.. m pretty much doubtful on tat. If its an RPC stuff, how shud i proceed wid SOAP implementation ??.. Please suggest... TIA to all
