Re: Interfacing Between Java and VB using SOAP or JAX-RPC

Basically SOAP, WebServices and JAX-RPC is all SOAP.
Then, FIRST of all you have to decide, if you want to use "SOAP messaging" or "SOAP RPC". SECOND, you have to choose a proper implementation for Java and VB. For Java, I'd recommend Apache SOAP 2.2, for VB, I don't know.
Hint: If you'd like to pass only primitive datatypes from Java to VB or vs versus, use SOAP RPC. You find sample code for Apache SOAP here: http://xml.apache.org/soap/docs/index.html. It's quite simple.
