service method that returns a DOM Document (org.w3c.dom.Document). How do I do this?</A></STRONG><BR>
   You need to return a DOM Element rather than a Document, and you need to specify the use
of Literal XML encoding for the return value. The encoding style of a Call return is determined
by the encoding style of the Request. DOM Elements use Literal XML encoding. For example,
if a service accepts one String Parameter and returns an Element, just set the encoding style
for the call to "<A HREF="http://xml.apache.org/xml-soap/literalxml"">http://xml.apache.org/xml-soap/literalxml"</a>
and the encoding style for the parameter to "<A HREF="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding"">http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding"</a>.
Thus, part of your client code would look like:<BR>...<BR>Call call = new Call();<BR>call.setTargetObjectURI("urn:someservice");<BR>call.setMethodName("callmethod");<BR>call.setEncodingStyleURI(

   Have a look at the following:<BR>- Idoox WASP <A HREF="http://www.idoox.com">http://www.idoox.com</a>
(not open source, uses JDBC)<BR>- The Mind Electric GLUE <A HREF="http://www.themindelectric.com">http://www.themindelectric.com</a>
(not open source, uses JDBC)<BR>- jUUDI, on sourceforge at <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/projects/uddi/">http://sourceforge.net/projects/uddi/</a>.
It's relatively young (i.e. the current release is an alpha), but SOAP users report that the
guy running the project is very helpful, and that it looks like the code runs off whichever
db platform you want. Ensure you get the code from CVS, not the (tarball) release.<BR>-
pUDDIng at <A HREF="http://www.opensorcerer.org/">http://www.opensorcerer.org/</a>
(UDDI v2.0 on Oracle). The author is talking about adding support for other database platforms.<p>

to parse WSDL files?</A></STRONG><BR>
  +Yes, IBM have one. The Web Services Description Language for Java Toolkit (WSDL4J) allows
the creation, representation, and manipulation of WSDL documents describing services. See
