Hello,

I search a simple, easy to setup, example, which shows how to use struts in combination with a webservice.

The example should include following:
- A struts action should call a controller. e.g. DBController.
- A Web Service should also use methods of DBController. Not necessarly direct - if another servlet is between, it's ok. (client - servlet - DBController)

Up to now i' was not able to find a simple example. There are a lot of information about struts or webservice but not both together.

This article suggests an architecture matching ws and struts. However I couldn't compile the example, because it needs an API (import com.tbf.xml.* from a company long gone. So, if somebody has been succesful in compiling this program, please let me know.

Why not look for a simple example that uses regular Servlets to hit a Web Service? It's the same thing.

the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the thread title was...what the heck does WS has anything to do with struts? i am echoing that through marc's comment. where and how the data is being requested/retreived/served is independent of the controller and view (struts).
