Subject Re: How to collect a SOAP Message
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 20:12:36 GMT
Yes, I really need the SOAP Body.

I was studying the use of SOAP Handlers to achieve my intention. And it was:

1. I would create a web service with a generic input. (String)
2. I would create a server SOAP Handler to receive all messages going to my web
3. The SOAP Handler would transform the SOAP Body content in a String to keep
with web service input. So, in my imagination, I could send any complex types
(Person: [Name,  age,  salary] ; Address: [street, city, state, coutry] ;
product: [Name, price] ;) from different clients. My Handler would get these
complex types and change them to a string and pass to web service as a String

4. My web service would receive the Sting (but the content of it is a complex
type structure originally sent) and transform it to a Document (DOM) and them
extracts the information. As I want to arrive. 

So I would have a web service that could receive any complex type... without a
previously knowledge about the type being receiving and without changes client
method calls. The same client can pass a Person Java Bean, a String, a Adress
Java Bean to this my web service. 

But in my studies I noticed that the web service still needs a (DE)Serializer
for a type. I implemented my web service with a handler and sent a String form
client. Works fine. But,  when I sent a Person Java Bean an error saying:

No serializer found for class Person ...

was sent... And my Handler didn't receive anything as I track.

So, my intentions to transform a complex type to String inside the Handler
falled down.

I think I must abandon my idea, and make a web service to treat a single data
type, or make a web service that extract information from XML, but ensuring
that all my clients will sent only native XML documents, inside the SOAP Body.

I would like to thank all of you who help me with my crazy questions.
