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

Check out GLUE from "The Mind Electric" (
<> ). you can use this
product to generated java classes from WSDL. From what I understand, and I
don't understand everything yet, but to use WSDL you need to use one of the
utilities they provide, such as wsdl2java to generate client class, and then
use them in your application to call up a web service described by that WSDL
file. As of right now, I don't think there are any automated utility for you
to use to read WSDL file from UDDI registry and generate java client classes
on the fly and then to incorporate it in your application. You have to do
things manually. If there are such platform, then somebody please correct
me. May be Microsoft does that, but probably only through their IDE.
I did not unders your question about DataHandler class. Please provide more
information if you want me to help you. Thanks

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 ! )
