Hi all,
I need to create a dynamic web service client, by dynamic I mean it will have no specific knowledge of any web services itself. What I have so far are my web services deployed using axis, each web service has an inspection.wsil file that is located at url entry point and a class that reads the inspection.wsil files to give me the url of the wsdl for the service.
So now I need to figure out how to write a client that will parse each wsdl file and be able to call the services using SOAP. This is where I'm a bit stumped. All the web service client examples I've seen have web service information hardcoded in and this is what I am trying to avoid. Could anyone point me in the direction of tools, examples or suggestions on how to acheive this.

Something about .... going for a swim. With this tiny ad ...
