Hi all,

I have couple of questions and issues(all togather), which I got while I was exploring Apache Axis 1.4.

Before I go for the questions, let me confirm my understanding,
- Web services or services can be invoked or called by two ways one of them is by using the JAX-RPC way and other by SOAP. I was able to get the difference between them after couple of examples.
- Axis provides way for both of these implementations, however the Java2WSDL and WSDL2Java code creation tools are much inclined towards JAX-RPC based calls, rather than SOAP message based calls

Correct my understanding if I am wrong...I feel its to be corrected :-)

Now coming to my issues,

I am trying to implement a SOAP call to a service.The actual issue I am facing is, the request SOAP message goes to the server in full and it gets printed in tomcat console as full message. However, in the client I am able to get only partial message. I am unable to understand why its a problem.

Now my question is,

What is the difference between MessageContext objects getRequestMessage(), setRequestMessage(), getResponseMessage(), setResponseMessage() usage and Connection object's call method return in terms of response.

To explain better,
I am making a SOAP call in my client as follows,

and my Impl class is as follows,

You may notice that, I am getting the request message from the MessageContext, so whats the need of passing the message object in call. In same way, I am returning a null in the Impl class but setting a response message in context, which I am able to get in client(partially). I am very much confused here

It would be great, if you could help me get answers for these questions and solve my confusions.
