Problem to invoke a method of webservice from a C++ SoapClient

Posts: n/a
I used SoapClient Libray provided by SQLData to invoke a method
exposed by Webservices of weblogic over HTTP.(using WSDL). I'm not
successful to complete this. If we use this library, we need only few
lines of C++ client code to talk with remote webservice. This library
provides a method called ExecuteMethod() which takes only 4 impt
parameters, 1)URL of WSDL file of the server, 2)Method to invoke
3)paramters 4) output. This method would build a soap client request
and do html encoding and send that to the server, where it is parsed &
the response would be build as a soap response and send over http.

This particular method 'ExecuteMethod()' does all the above functions.
We could see the log message also from the console window. From the
logging, am able to see that, connection to weblogic is done properly
and i cud see the soap request, html encoding etc.. but, i'm getting
problems with the response.

Let me give you the piece of code

// initialize input parameters.
TCHAR * ppParamNames[3]={"bstrParam1", "bstrParam2", NULL};
TCHAR * ppParamValues[3]={ "My First Param", "My Second Param",

TCHAR * pNames[1]={NULL};
TCHAR * pValues[1]={NULL};
const TCHAR * szResponse = NULL;

// create a soapagent in debug mode (mode=4)
SoapAgent *pSoapAgent= MakeSoapAgent(NULL, NULL,4);
return -1;
vector<string>* pOutputValues;

"http://localhost:7001/axis/services/jmxconnector?wsdl", // WSDL
"getDomains", // method name to be invoked.
pNames, // vector of input parameter names.
pValues, // vector of input parameter values.
&pOutputValues // pointer to vector of output parameters

// print out results
int nSize = pOutputValues->size();
for(int i=0; i<nSize; i++)
_tprintf("%s\n", (*pOutputValues)[i].c_str());
// this get complete response..
szResponse = pSoapAgent->GetResponse(NULL, true);
_tprintf("Complete Reponse : \n%s\n", szResponse);
// this get the envelope
szResponse = pSoapAgent->GetResponse("Envelope", false);
_tprintf("Response Envelope : \n%s\n", szResponse);

// this get the message body
szResponse = pSoapAgent->GetResponse("Envelope|Body", false);
_tprintf("Response Body : \n%s\n", szResponse);
// this get the return variable
szResponse = pSoapAgent->GetResponse("Envelope|Body|Method1Response|bstrRe turn",
_tprintf("Return Value : \n%s\n", szResponse);

// get an attachment if any, use either Content-Id or numerical
index as the first parameter.
// BYTE * pContent = pSoapAgent->GetAttachment("1", nSize);
// obtain error string when failed.
_tprintf ("************************************************ ***********\n");
_tprintf("Error String %s\n", pSoapAgent->GetErrorString());

return 0;

The Soap Client library I use is SoapClient36c.exe.

2) -

This is a test html page. If we give the URL for the WSDL, it will
fetch the methods in the next page and we can provide the values for
the paramters for the methods to invoke.

I had a doubt that, since, i have given the url with localhost, how
would the remote machine identify the server machine. but, its able to
connect the server. I tested this by stopping the weblogic server. Its
not able to send the soap request message.

It would be really helpful, If somebody would provide me a solution.
If there is any other pointers, pls guide me.
