This method is supposed to return true or false. However, it returns a NullPointerException. This exception is repeated for every Webmethod requiring some form of input parameter. However, when I call a test method “getTime” (which need no input), the response is correct.
Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem?
Alternatively, is there any other way of calling web services?
Answering this question would save my life!! Thanks
I am afraid I have not expressed myself well enough. It is the method of the webservice that is supposed to return true or false. The above method is just calling the webservice with some parameters and outputting the result via the alert().
I stop there and leave it to other members that have understood your problem better.
It is not so easy to see when you are in a hurry. When I sat down and took a break, I finally think I understand your problem. A webservice can of course be delivered as a PHP or a Java file that produces XML code like:
Note also that Native SOAP support has been dropped in Firefox 3 accoding to this note.
