Hi There
I have a daunting task of webservice enabling a c application . All the examples I have start with creating artifacts from a WSDL(apache axis for c) How do I go about generating this WSDL? Do I need to write the WSDL by hand generate my c stuff and then tweak those?
Any ideas
Cheers
Priya

make that C code a DLL use it in a .NET project .....

or

you can make a Java wrapper of C++ class using JNI and use it in a Java WS ......

Thats exactly what I did one approach I have been asked to see if there are other ways of doing the same.

What good would a Java wrapper do? WS are platform- and language-independent, so the client won't care what language the WS is implemented in.

The WSDL is generated by the SOAP stack - Axis C in this case. The documentation will tell you under which URL you can access it once the WS is up and running, but it's probably pretty similar to what Axis Java does.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
