R – .NET client calling a java webservice — (how to change the root namespace)


Currently we have a java webservice that we are trying to connect to via a .NET client. This is all done over SSL. Are there any well known gotchas as this seems to be a problem that has come up again and again. What are the most well known gotchas I should be looking for?

The java web service is a SOAP/WSDL. There are no WS-* extensions like WS-Security.

Ok, here is the exact problem I am looking to solve:
We were given a java webservice to call from a C# client. I've tracked the problem down to the fact that the java webservice is expecting some modified xml that the C# client is not producing. The java webservice is expecting something along these lines:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<iAttr:MyObject1 xmlns="iAttr" xmlns:iAttr="http://www.foo.com/WS">
<iAttr:MyObject2 xmlns="isum" xmlns:isum="http://www.foo.com/WS">

The problem is, that the xml/SOAP stuff that my client is generating is like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<iAttr:MyObject1 xmlns="iAttr" xmlns:iAttr="http://www.foo.com/WS">

note: the lack of "iAttr" in the C# version.

Question: How do I add the attributes problematically in C# to match what the java WS is expecting?

Best Solution

I didn't write the service. Here is the weird thing: a java client making the same webservice call works perfectly. However a .NET client making the exact same webservice call breaks.
