hi all,

I'm wondering that can i use xpath for soap response. I mean i want to take only spesific parameters on my soap request, not all soap request xml. Is that possible?
I've searched about that but where i look, i see that xpath used with soap response when all the response got and then they parsed some values. I don't want that.

Or is there any other technologies allow me to do that. My problem is some of my soap response's are too big that i get timeout. I'm trying to prevent that problem and get the only neccessary part of response envelope.

If you can't even get a full response then there's very little you can do about that on the client side. If this was my problem I'd start by investigating why you're getting a timeout - is the server slow, is the network slow, can you request less data, etc. It helps if you can work with the creator of that web service on this issue.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
