Well with the modified listener from James, i was able to run the code. My
scenario was that i was running MS SOAP listener with IIS and using Apache
Java Soap Client. It works fine for me.

Hello Yousuf & co !
Your mail made me want to have another go, as I seem to be wrestling with
same problem ( Java Apache client on a MS IIS server).
How did you get on with your struggling ?

According to James Snell (ref. to the oreilly links below) there have been
working client/server solutions both ways.

I seem however to be stuck somewhere in the MS/Apache compatibility issue...
I've replaced the MS listener.asp with one which was supposed to cope with
xsd typing deal, and as I debug on the server(MS) side I can see
the request looking quite readable:

xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">carriagereturnlinefeed<SOAP-ENV:Body>
carriagereturnlinefeed<ns1:Myfunction xmlns:ns1="http://
MyServerAddress/MyIISserver/SoapTestApp.asp" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="">carriagereturnlinefeed<
MyFirstParamvalue xsi:type="xsd:double">MyFirstParamvalueAsDouble</

Where do these <CR><LF> Come from ? Is this significant? I've copied the
building of the req. from the Apache client examples.

But the server never POSTs any response.
Any brilliant minds out there ?

I'm working on the same thing, and, I'm a little disappointed in the
results.  Here's a pretty good article outlining the differences in the

Basically, the two are incompatible.  So much for a "standard".

On the upside, the two have agreed on the WSDL (UDDI) spec which should
remedy this.  We'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, we're taking the same tact as the other respondents and
building a VB SOAP client that constructs the SOAP request the way the
Apache SOAP listener expects.

Hi guys,

I need some help on interoperability b/w Apache SOAP4J and MS SOAP Toolkit.
Has any one actually used the MS Soap Listner with IBM client or vice verca?
I have been trying to work with it, but no results yet. I have a COM based
solution and i want to use the services using Java with the help of SOAP. I
have got both Apache and MS implementations working with respective clients.

Any expiriences???

I am also trying to get VBScript working with Apache Listner. It says i need
to have BSF. Any one has got a compiled working version of this BSF?? Would
appreciate if someone could send it.

Thnaks for the help.
