I'm having some problems understanding how to send a request to a web service that I have deployed. I have followed the following tutorial:
Which I have successfully applied, and it worked well. The tutorial was straightforward, and I have easily generated a web service client. All I did was creating "request" objects from the exposed web service method, set its arguments, and then using the web service stub, I have passed the request object to the exposed web service method, and got a response.
Now, I have received a WSDL file from which I'm supposed to build a web service client as well. The problem is that the generated files from the WSDL differ greatly from that of the tutorial I followed. I learned later on that when generating clients using ADB, there is a mode called "Expanded Mode" that generates " a class for each of the outer elements and the named complex types " (http://axis.apache.org/axis2/java/core/docs/adb/adb-howto.html#gen_modes). The problem is that I'm unable to understand how to create a request object and get a response from the web service from the generated classes. My best shot was as follows:
After trying to debug the problem, I have found out that this is the line that is throwing the exception:
I just want you guys to tell me if the way I'm using the request/response objects is correct.What I'm sure about is that the service is up and running, since I have tried to create an AXIS 1 client for it, and it worked just fine.
Your help is much appreciated.
