Subject FW: How to access and use Serializer independently?
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 13:42:05 GMT
Can't believe that nobody has tried this.  Let me reword it, and maybe
somebody can give me a yes/no answer.


Is it possible to populate an axis1.2 generated java binding object
(from WSDL2Java) and generate XML to an outputstream?


yes or no would be good.


if yes, a general idea on how would be helpful


I thank anybody that can help.

Subject: How to access and use Serializer independently?


I've been playing with this for awhile, and there just "seems" to be a
lot of coupling that makes it difficult to do this.


Essentially I have a service running perfectly using the default
serializer/deserializer for Axis 1.2


Now I would like to incorporate a REST interface on a few simple
messages we support.




FooRequest and FooResponse are classes that work just fine.  They have
been generated by WSDLtoJava and we use them with our service.


I now get a Post that contains parameters that allow me to create
FooRequest from the httpRequest.  We scrub it and do it properly.

We then take FooRequest and pass it to our backend processor that knows
how to return the FooResponse object.  Normally this object is passed
back to the Axis engine and it handles it for non-REST input.


Now, all I really want to do is take FooResponse and use Axis
Deserializer to generate XML or a DOM from which I can get to the XML so
that I can write it back to the Web Client httpResponse.


How do I do that?  Is there not an easy way to use the getSerializer
built into the generated objects and invoke it?  If so, what is the
magic sequence to do this?


I'm hoping the answer is far shorter than the question.


Thanks for any help
