Q

Using SAP BC to access a SOAP service

A SearchWebServices.com member asks one of our experts " I have created a Web service using Axis and deployed it successfully on WebSphere. I'm using SAP BC as my SOAP Client to access the SOAP Service. I'm getting the SOAP Responses, few were successful but sometimes I get the following SOAP Response: 'Hi there, this is an AXIS service! Perhaps there will be a form for invoking the service here…' The SOAP call is unsuccessful. Do you know whether the problem is with SAP BC or my AXIS SOAP Service?" Read the response or pose a question of your own.

It sounds to me like your client is doing an HTTP GET on the SOAP service URL rather than an HTTP POST. Or perhaps it's trying to retrieve the WSDL using ?wsdl, but the WSDL isn't available. If your service is implemented using the .jws method, that message would be normal if there's no WSDL available.
