Subject RE: Forwarding a web service call...
Date Mon, 04 Sep 2006 14:46:25 GMT


Thanks for your response, but to be perfectly honest, I didn't
understand a single word of that... I guess I am still a newbie....


I am not actually using any of the Axis api for the things I have done
thus far, so, digging into the servlet and such are a little beyond me.


Is there not any way I can use a proxy (client) to another system to do
what I want? I was thinking I could go through and change package names
and such to differentiate the client from the actual (server side)
implementation, but, I found this to be fairly difficult as well - not
that I mind difficult. I just need to know what actually works.


Thanks again,

Good Morning Stan--

Far from it ..You're NOT mentally challenged at all..You're asking a
valid question which SHOULD be asked!
As forwarding a response is a challenge I found earlier this week.. I
countered the error by creating a few mutator methods in MessageContext

msgContext.setResponse and msgContext.setRequest to be set from within
AxisServlet as soon (as the msgContext object is acquired)
Later in in your <WebService>Manager Stub class when you acquire the
msgContext object 
you will be able to re-acquire the original response and request objects
via MessageContext accessor methods-
BTW When I originally posted this same question I did get a response
from dims (Apache committer) as well as Luis (from IEEE)


I hope this helps your efforts-

	I am using axis to run the same set of web services on several
different servers. 


	One of the methods is called "getItem". I am not sure if this
makes sense or not, but, here goes.


	If I call getItem on one server and the item does not exist in
that database, I want the call to be "forwarded" to the next server in
the chain. I tried creating a proxy class and changing the endpoint and
passing the parameters to the next server, but this does not work...


	Here is some sample code:



	public ItemInfo getItem(CredentialsInfo credentials,String
itemId) {




	    "get the item from the current database"

	    If (theItem == null) {

	         CETGServicesProxy proxy = new CETGServicesProxy();


	         ItemInfo item = proxy.getItem(credentials,itemId);

	         return item;





	Is this possible, or, am I just being mentally challenged?


	Thanks for any help...
