Axis is a SOAP implementation and the .NET Framework provides SOAP support. Can I write a Java client to communicate using Axis with C# apps., i.e. can an Axis SOAP and a .NET SOAP interoperate?
Yes, Axis and .NET can interoperate. That's the fundamental goal of SOAP -- to enable multivendor interoperability. Interoperability isn't always seamless, though. You need to make sure that you design your WSDL interfaces properly. For best results, use document/literal style services with the "wrapped" programming convention. (That's the default in .NET. In Axis you must specify the "wrapped" style.) You can also find plenty of advice for Axis/.NET interoperability on the net.
