Hi, I am trying a program with SOAP. I am using JAX pack. I want to establish communication between a server program and a client. I am using the JAXM classes for SOAP functionality. I am not using any web server or application server(If I use a web server I could write a servlet which extends JAXMServlet, which has onMessage method). I am sending the SOAP message to the server. With socket programming I am able to read the message. The thing is I have to convert back the string SOAP message to the SOAPMessage object, so that I can proceed further. Is there a way to convert a string SOAP message to a SOAPMessage object? Seems that there is no method in SOAPMessage class. If someone knows the solution, please let me know. Or is there any other way to solve this problem? Seenu.
