Java Soap Client

I ran into a short problem writing a Java SOAP client. I was using the Axis[2] wsdl2java class to generate my Java classes. The latest version of wsdl2java has omitted the -T parameter that’s used to specify the SOAP version for the generate classes. The client’s soap endpoint only accepts SOAP 1.1 (not 1.2) so this proved to be a problem. I downloaded an older version of Axis [1.4] so I could specify the -T 1.1 and build against SOAP 1.1.

This time around the generated Java classes are missing the soap envelope headers needed by the service. I found a great article covering this exact problem.

The only change needed from there was in the service stub…

The org.apache.axis.soap.SOAPConstants.SOAP12_CONSTANTS needed to be changed to org.apache.axis.soap.SOAPConstants.SOAP11_CONSTANTS. I was a bit surpised to see those constants after building w/the wsdl2java -T 1.1 argument.

Disclaimer: I’m not a SOAP *expert* so feel free to provide feedback 🙂

Glassfish LCDS Flex Up Next

It’s been a busy year getting a J2EE and Data Warehousing education. I’m wrapping up the ETL portion of a large Data Warehousing project. The next phase of the project is building a Flex front-end for the warehouse. I’m looking forward to using the Spark Architecture in Flex 4 for the UI, we should be able to generate some amazing UIs.
