Hi,

I have been trying to urgently find out if MS Soap is compatible with Websphere 5.1 . I have a vb client which needs to access the Java Web Service deployed under my Websphere 5.1 Application Server. I tried but on TCPMON i could c all garbage values in the request. does this mean i cannot use MSSoap client with the Websphere based webservice.

Yes they are compatible. This is where WS-I compliance comes in. If you write a WS-I compliant Web Service in WAS (which is the default) then you will be able to access it from a Microsoft client.

Hi Kyle,

Thanx for a quick Reponse. Since i am new with Webservices you may need to guide me a little further with the WS-I compliancy. The Java Webservice was already existin and working with the Oracle9ias App server. i.e VB 6.0 Client was talkin to the Webservice deployed on Oracle9ias App server successfully. I made no changes to the WebService and instead using the EJB2WebService tool provided by IBM generated the various files needed by Websphere inorder to deploy it as a Webservice.
The Deployment shows success on Webpshere with the following message "And now the Servcies..." , so i am assuming from this message that the Servcie has been deployed successully.

When i access the Service frmo a Java Client using Apache Soap i can c the correct response on TCPMON , but on the comman prompt i get the followin error :


[SOAPException: faultCode=SOAP-ENV:Client; msg=No Deserializer found to deserialize a ' <a href="http://soap.ejb.businessobjects.a2g.infocorpnow.com:querySessionBean</b rel="nofollow">" target="_blank">http://soap.ejb.businessobjects.a2g.infocorpnow.com:querySessionBean



Next when i call the same service from a VB utility runnin MS Soap toolkit 3.0 , i get the following error on TCPMON :

[CDATA[org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0xfffe) was found in the prolog of the document.[/B]





And in the Websphere System.out log file i get the following error :



WebServicesFault
faultCode: Server.generalException
faultString: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0xfffe) was found in the prolog of the document.
faultActor: null
faultDetail:
