hello everybody

I have a written a java DOM code to read xml file and I need to use it to create a web service that reads xml files using netbeans
the problem is in the return type of the code since it's void the web service returns null
so I was wondering if there is another way to make the web service print the xml file contents or another return type for the method

here is my xml file "CV.xml"


and here is my DOM code
I know it's too long but thats how I learnt to write it


thanks in advance>

Hi

Can't you return a string containing the content of xml to print from the method instead of void. so that the WS client will consume the string and print it.

Thanks
Arjun.

This really sounds like a job for a RESTful web service.

Here is a Netbeans tutorial on creating a RESTful service.
