I have a webservice SOAP hosted on google app engine, and this is link to wsdl file:
Now what i wanna do it's to build the full http request (contains xml soap service request) for use a service. I know there's a library for manage soap request, but i'm not interestet to use it

It's hard to advise what to do if you're not interested in using apparently helpful tools; try SoapUI.

Well, since a SOAP message is just an XML document you could create a http request body with any text editor - that is pretty primitive but would work.

Yep. Or build XML on more higher level with SAAJ. There are plenty of ways.
I agree. Here's the link:
