Java Code To invoke SOAP Webservice With https endpoint
       Talk to EasyAssistant

This page descirbe how to invoke SOAP service from JAVA client. It provides sample Java client code to invoke SOAP service with https endpoint. It uses POSt method. It shows basic java code to connect server and get the response.. It can be copied and used any other java java project. .

Webservice consumer need to invoke the SOAP service/api very frequently. Normally webservice provider provides the end point URL and soap action and a WSDL file. URL uses HTTPS protocol. Consumer need to write code to access/invoke the webservice service. We invoke webservice with POST methods.
Sample code given below can be used to invoke SOAP webservice .
There are many way to invoke the SOAP web service. But this is the best and easy way to invoke complex soap webservice.

Note:
  1. Please use the soap endpoint url.
  2. Then use soap action.
  3. send request to server and get the response.
