Hi, my problem is as follows (I'll try to word the question as best i can but im new to webservices so be gentle):
I'm working with a webservice test tool that has already been implemented in .net and i've been asked to do the same in java. So, I used the existing wsdl files for the .net implementation and apache axis to generate the stubs / complex types needed. Now, the way this is supposed to work is that the user will load an xml file containing the information to be passed by the soap request, and then have it consumed and return the soap response. However, I have no idea how to send the request with the information stored in the xml. A sample call looks something like:
response = quote.quoteGMP(loan, applicant, coverage, paymentFrequency);
where each field is a class generated by axis from the wsdl. Now, when the values contained within these complex types are set explicitly using their respective 'set' functions, the service works fine. Is there a way I could use the xml to set those values before the service is invoked? Any help with this would be appreciated. I'm using IBM RAD and Axis 1.1(unfortunately)
Sorry if this explanation seems vague, but im new to this stuff and im a bit reluctant to post code because of company privacy etc.
