Hello Everyone,

I am new to webservices and I have a question . My clinet wants me to write a webservices client to utilise the APIs. He has not provided me WSDL but host and port and want me to send SOAP request to this HOST and PORT and I will get response back.

How should I go about writing this?Can you please provide some pointers? I know for WSDL i could have used AXIS 2 ,but here they have not provided WSDL and just Host and Port. What should I use to develop client?

Thanks

I think you should ask your client for WSDL without any hesitation.

Hi!
If your client wants you to send SOAP requests to his/her service, the you must really have a WSDL for, for instance, these reasons (this list is basically for your client ):
  • Defines the format of the request and response payloads that you are to send to and receive from the service.
  • Selects transport to use when sending and receiving messages (thought, this is almost always HTTP).
  • Declares security requirements of the service through policies in the WSDL.
  • Specifies the type of binding used by the service (for instance RPC/Literal or Document/Literal).

  • Best wishes!
