[jdom-interest] JDOM Document over SOAP

Most of the SOAP example code uses SOAP's bundled-in marshalling methods to
set the outgoing parameters and values. Unless you're sending something
complicated I found it best to use the Call object and a Vector to set the

When SOAP returns a response it gives you a Response object, which is an XML

SAXBuilder responseSAXTree = new SAXBuilder();
Document doc = responseSAXTree.build( response );

will create a JDOM object that you can use to read and manipulate to find
the results of the call.

You may find the SoapObject code in Load, an open-source project I manage,
to be helpful in learning SOAP. Load is at http://www.pushtotest.com.
