Subject Re: calling dot net web services from java soap

You used

    r = c.invoke ( new URL( "localhost/soap/servlet/rpcrouter"), "" 

because "localhost/soap/servlet/rpcrouter" was the URL for your Apache SOAP service.  The
URL is simply the service endpoint; it can be any URL.  To call a .NET service, you might

    r = c.invoke ( new URL(http://localhost/services/MyService.asmx), "" )

Overall, the interop story is that it is *simple* to work with .NET when the services are
rpc/encoded.  The default with .NET services, however, is to use document/literal.  There
are some hacks and workarounds in Apache SOAP (some only in the nightly builds), but interop
there is still less than ideal.

For the best interop with .NET, you should use Apache Axis.  It supports more specs, notably
WSDL 1.1.
