Subject RE: WSDL File : VB SOAP Client -> Java Apache SOAP Server

Hi Ryan,

Also have a look at Cape Clear's product set CapeConnect & CapeStudio.
They have all of the Java SOAP capability, great Microsoft interop and a VB
client generation tool which generates the VB proxies for you.

  Thank you Max, Anne.

  I will look into the implementations you mentioned.

  Any ideas on the "deserializing" of more complex data types that do not
break down into primitives ? ( Like the DataHandler - which is like a byte
stream / data stream - Max )

  Thanks, even though I do not have a sample or a solution, just to know
others have suffered the same fate as I have makes me feel better... Lets
just hope that SOAP will find some middle ground and that all these issues
with data types and interop. issues will be washed away !

  Subject: WSDL File : VB SOAP Client -> Java Apache SOAP Server


  I have searched the entire internet ( well it certainly feels like that )
and have not found what I am looking for.

  I have a Java SOAP Server running on Apache SOAP and have written a great
Java SOAP Client.

  I got a VB SOAP Client to work with some of my Java Server methods
 simple data types ) but this was using the low level API ( Hard coding the
data types into the VB Client ). Now I want to get my mind around the
concept of a WSDL file that will define the interface for my VB Client.

  I have been unable to find much on this topic, many article cover WSDL and
the connection with SOAP, all promise follow-up articles with examples, but
nothing ever develops...

  Please, somebody, take the Apache SOAP StockQuote sample and build us all
a VB Client that makes use of a WSDL file and that works !!!

  Also, I want to know how the interop is going to work for my Java Server
methods that take / return parameters of Java type DataHandler ??? How will
a VB client break this down to simple types ???

  Thanks for your help, somebody, anybody...

  ( The article on the aims group website did not help, I want the dummies
guide please ! )
