I have a application that needs to call a webservice to validate some date. In my application I just want a method that will call into the webservice pass an object get an object back carry on processing. The application will be running in tomcat.

There are plenty of articles on setting up webservices but not many that are helpful on the web service client side.

If anyone has one they found helpful could they post me a link

Cheers

That'll be somewhat specific to the SOAP stack you're using. E.g., for Axis it's described in the User Guide and JAXWS Guide sections of the main documentation: http://ws.apache.org/axis2/1_5_1/contents.html

If the service is RESTful, then any Http client library (like Apache HttpClient) will do.
