.NET client consuming web service in JAX-WS on tomcat

I am consuming a web service written in JAX-WS with a .NET client. My client proxy class iwas generated using the wsdl.exe tool. In order to maintain a session on the server, my client needs to set this value. At least, thats what the java client does.

Here is the java code sample. Does anyone know if:
1 - JAX-WS is interoperable between platforms
2 - Does using BindingProvider.SESSION_MAINTAIN_PROPERTY make this a java
specific implementation?
3 - What is the .NET equivalent of this?
4 - What does the put method actually do? I assume it inserts the session maintain value in the soap header.

Hello proxy = new HelloService().getHelloPort();

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Since you are using .NET client, you don't have to worry about JAX-WS client details. By setting session property, JAX-WS client sends the cookies back to the server.

I think the question was (and if not, then my question is) how to enable session on .net client to use stateful web service.

I have a stateful webservice written using HTTPSession described in Rama's blog at . But I have a .net client. Rama has demonstrated how to enable session on Java client.


My question is how to do it in .Net client. Is it equivalent to enabling cookie ?

Also, if a client does not want to enable cookie, can HTTPSession use URLrewriting to maintain the session ?

In order to maintain session when using .NET client, you have to enable Cookies in .NET client. Actually cookies are by default enabled but there is a problem because CookieContainer is null so you have to instantiate it manually like this:

private System.Net.CookieContainer cookies;

when calling web service :
if(cookies == null) {
cookies = new System.Net.CookieContainer();
service.CookieContainer = cookies;
