Hi,

I've looked at a number of examples that show how to use a client-api for sending a SOAP message to a service, as well as how to view the incoming SOAP message as XML... however, I've looked around and haven't been able to find a simple case where creates a SOAP message as raw XML and submits it directly to the service (maybe as a post?) Does anyone know of samples out there where this is done?

Thanks!

As you said, it's just an HTTP POST of some text, so something like this should work.

Here is what I used, where the reqT object reads a text template of the SOAP message and fills in a couple of values. The main things here are to get the various HttpURLConnection parameters set right before connecting AND to read the response before closing the connection.



The response variable is an instance String.
