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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
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 with calling soap service written (most probably in java)

Hi evebody, I'm experiencing problem calling third-party service written in java (mostprobably).

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?

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<

how to convert a byte[] to a xsd:hexBinary in the WSDL generated of a WCF service


Hi, i always see a byte[] type in the contract gets converted into a base64Binary type. What should i do in my WCF service contract so that the date type in the WSDL comes out to hexBinary ?

Will appreciate your help.


Is it possible to convert WSDL file back to Service Contract Interface for hosting? (WCF)


Hi there,

I would like to convert WSDL file to Service Contract Interface for hosting purposes. I know there is an option  to create proxy classes for clients using SVCUtil.exe or WSDL.exe. But this is not i would like to do.

I have a situation where, one of our clients have already hosted webservice. And I need to host a similar webservice. so to do it I must hand craft whole service contract Interface from the scratch. So without writing from the start can I use the existing WSDL to create the service contract Interface and the implementation class automatically with some tool?

.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.





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.

Invalid web service call, missing value for parameter: \u0027prefixo\u0027 (AutoCompleteExtender)


Good afternoon.

I'm trying to put an AutoCompleteExtender working, but i'm having an error, that i discovered with Fiddler, that is the reason that the autocomplete doesn't work:

How do I find the file path from a namespace.class name?


I'm programatically looking ito a .aspx file and getting the file class name declared in its CodeBehind. For example, when analyzing myFile.aspx I read in its Page Directive and found its CodeBehind equals "myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb". Then I use the code below:


Dim Assm As System.Reflection.Assembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFrom("myApplication\bin\myApplication.dll")
Dim ClassType As Type = Assm.GetType("myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb")
' myBaseType = "myApplication.Forms.BasePage"
Dim myBaseType As System.Type = ClassType.BaseType


Now I want to read the BaseFile (class = myApplication.Forms.BasePage). However, to read in this file, I need I need to get its full path instead of its namespace.class hiearchy. In this case, the BasePage is wrapped in a different namespace declaration thus I cannot just change the '.' to '\' in order to get the path.

How can I get the path of BasePage so I can read it? Thank you - Frank

                    new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + filePath + ";Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=NO'");

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from [list$]",excelConnection);
