problem with calling soap service written (most probably in java)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hi evebody, I'm experiencing problem calling third-party service written in java (mostprobably). When i call service i get following response: <env:Envelope xmlns:env='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'> <env:Header></env:Header> <env:Body> <env:Fault xmlns:env='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'> <faultcode>env:Server</faultcode> <faultstring>Content root name does not match element name: {http://foo.bar/}arg0 != arg0</faultstring> </env:Fault> </env:Body> </env:Envelope> I've used command line java utility provided by service provider and found following difference: soap request, generated by wcf (similar results with webservices)   <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"> <s:Body> <baz xmlns="http://foo.bar/"> <arg0 xmlns="">string value</arg0> <arg1 xmlns="">string value</arg1> <arg2 xmlns="">string value</arg2> </baz> </s:Body> </s:Envelope> request, generated by java utility: <S:Envelope xmlns:S="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"> <S:Body> <ns2:baz xmlns:ns2="http://foo.bar/"> <arg0>string value</arg0> <arg

WCF - Java web service interop - Problem with asymmetric binding

WCF MTOM Client calling Java Webservice - Issues with File attachment Content ID encoded in SOAP mes

Hello,I'm having difficulty calling a MTOM enabled Java based web service that accepts an file as input..NET appeats to be generating a SOAP message where the reference to the binary part of the message is an encoded url.For Example:  <inc:Include href="cid:http%3A%2F%2Ftempuri.org%2F1%2F634000265217257868" xmlns:inc="http://www.w3.org/2004/08/xop/include"/>In fact, the Content ID defined in the SOAP message, looks nothing like the actual Content ID of the actual message part.Content-ID: <http://tempuri.org/1/634000265217257868=2787915398744@soapui.org>The service is invoked and executed on the java webserver...but the data element appears to be null.I do not believe the java web server understands the reference in the SOAP message because it is encoded....Or...perhaps it's because the Content-ID attribute has extract stuff on it.I'm working with a custom MTOM encoder in WCF....is there a way to generate your own Content ID or tell .NET not to encode the url?My frustration with .NET has reached an all new level with this project...Any help would be greatly appreciated.Here the SOAP message that is being generated:<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:ns="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/messaging/200901" xmlns:ns1="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/core/200901&q

How to consume java base SOAP web service XWSS?


I have java base SOAP web service XWSS. I installed WES 3.0 + VS2008

When I’s setting Security.Takens.Add() I’m getting message:
SoapContext.Security is obsolete.
Consider deriving from SendSecurityFilter or ReceiveSecurityFilter and creating a custom policy assertion that generates these filters.

Does it require some web service updates?
Do you have any samples how to create Custom Policy?

calling JAVA web service?




I am totally a beginner in web service. My vendor provide me a Java base web service and I just create a windows application to test it.  However, when i call the service, it returns including part of the previous result. My vendor doesn't know anything about .NET and they say should be my cookies problem. I tried many different methods but the problem still exist.

I add the web service by using service reference and I also have to change the allowCookies to "true" to make it work. My config as below, does anyone have any clue? I can only call the service using the second endpoint 12 because the endpoint 11 doesn't work at all.


        <binding name="SearchProcessServiceSoap11Binding" closeTimeout="00:01:00"
          openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00"

WCF interoperability with Java SOAP service - sign elements order, force wsu id value



I need to consume a SOAP web service created in Java from a WCF client. By intensively searching this on the web in general and on this forum in particular, I've seen that quite a lot of people have problems in this area, however I never found the answer to the questions I will post on this thread.

The service I have to consume has the following constraints:

  • needs transport level security by communicating over HTTPS 
  • needs signatures on the body (soap:body element) and a custom header of each request. The signature is done using a client certificate and complies with http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-soap-message-security-1.0.pdf. The signature is required only on requests. Service responses are not signed.

After an intensive amount of work I managed  to make my request messages look like (intercepted with fiddler):

<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:u<

C# reading Java/Php/SOAP service, WSDL generated file missing some namespace information

I'm trying to use a Web Service, which I believe is Java/php/SOAP, using C#.
I can connect and send fine, but the results, which are an array of information,
is null. The return is not instant, and I can get back errors.
I believe the problem is in the WSDL translation. The actual response coming back
does not line up with the WSDL generated code in reguards to namespaces. In
perticular, 'getCategoryTreeResponse' & 'getCategoryTreeResult' do not show up 
in the generated file.
I'm quite sure the WSDL file provided is poorly written but I have no control
over it. WSDL.exe only works when I pass a saved copy of the web service's
provided WSDL information due to the way it is called.

Problem to obtain client IP on web service



I'm having problems to obtain the client IP on web service. Here's my scenario:

One server with Windows 2003, hosting the web service using .Net Framework 2.0, with IP and host name ServerTransaction.
Other server with Windows 2003, hosting a web application using .Net Framework 2.0, that consuming the web service on  ServerTransaction, with IP and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs:,,, ...) acessing the web application on ServerApplication.

On the code of the web service I've tried to use HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FORR"), but always I can only get the IP of ServerApplication (

Any idea or tip?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

.Net Frameword 4 SOAP Web Service



We want to upgrade from VS2005 to VS2010. Before we do that, I would like some clarity about some things.


Can we build typical SOAP webservices with the 4 Framework as I could with 2.0?


Would a WCF Service allow me to have both REST/SOAP services in one application?


Is Framework 4 ONLY for REST services and I need to stick to 3.5 for SOAP?


I downloaded the free Web Developer 2010, but I cannot seem to get anywhere trying to figure this out.


Thanks for any input.





problem compiling web service


Using Visual Studio 2010.

I created a webservice GetDemographicData asmx, GetDemographicData asmx.cs and then used wsdl to create a proxy, then used csc.exe to create dll.

first time when I generate proxy, it looks and works fine, but when I make some changes to my webservice and regenerate proxy the following problems occur:

1.I lost the function: public DataSet Get_GetDemographicData(string CaseNum, int Version)

Service Station: WSE 3.0, SOAP Transports, and More


It's that time again. Time to answer some of the questions I get on a regular basis. This month I'll look at service orientation and policy-based compatibility, SOAP's transport-neutral design, and Web Services Enhancements (WSE) 3.0.

Develop a Web Service: Up and Running with the SOAP Toolkit for Visual Studio


The new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Toolkit for Visual Studio 6.0 provides the infrastructure for developers to build, expose, and consume Web services. With a few exceptions that are outlined in the toolkit, the SOAP Toolkit complies with the SOAP version 1.1 specification. It includes the Remote Object Proxy Engine (ROPE), a Service Description and Code Generation Wizard, and code that provides ASP and ISAPI reference implementations of SOAP listeners. This article describes the tools and the object model of the SOAP Toolkit, and then demonstrates ASP and ISAPI implementations of a functional Web service using this toolkit.

VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string


Anyone have any experience with this?

We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.


Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.


Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?






Problem with passing an Image as binary through web service



I have a web service that is accessed by a windows forms application and receives updates like facility name, address, image etc. Everything works fine except the image data is not being passed to the windows app. I am saving the images in database on both sides, so when I pull it from the server I use the following code

if (!reader.IsDBNull(floorPlanOrdinal))

facility.FloorPlan = (byte[])reader["FloorPlan"];

I can see the facility.FloorPlan Dimentions as 103840 when I debug this method which means that the data is pulled from the database fine.

On the forms side though the dimentions become 0, all other values pass fine except this. Here is the facility property in the web service on server side.
