    and Button code is Like :

    private void BtnLogin_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    StoreManagerServiceClient _storeMgr = new StoreManagerServiceClient(“StoreManagerService”);
    LoginRequest _lgnReq = new LoginRequest();
    _lgnReq.userName = txtUserName.Text;
    _lgnReq.password = txtpassword.Text;
    _lgnReq.role = “M”;
    _lgnReq.applicationType = “M”;
    _lgnReq.valid = true;

    _storeMgr.loginCompleted += new EventHandler(_storeMgr_loginCompleted);

    void _storeMgr_loginCompleted(object sender, loginCompletedEventArgs e)
    //throw new NotImplementedException();

    OK, I have struggled with this for hours; Google searches didn't help a lot - apart from questions of similar problems that have been left unanswered in a number of forums. Sometimes, when you call an AXIS-based web service from a .NET client, you receive a null (Nothing in VB) response. Since I don't consider at all the possibility of being the first one facing this issue, I figured that this solution will provide at least a good basis for someone dealing with it.


    The problem: A partner of mine deployed an AXIS-based web service on his machine. Since I had already started my ASP.NET 2.0 project, I tried to invoke his modules from VB.NET. While Visual Studio managed to read the WSDL successfully and build the proxy class, I kept receiving NULL responses (Nothing) from his web services. However, there was nothing wrong with his implementation since other types of web clients worked smoothly (I even tried this beautiful generic SOAP client). The strange thing was that I received no exception from .NET, the serviceseemed to run normally. And it actually did.

    So, to sum it up: the code below (which is normally how you'd expect a .NET client to invoke a WS) returned null(Nothing in VB):

     Collapse | Copy Code
    '***Let's pretend that you have added a web reference ' to a Java-enabled web service called Service1 
    '***The name of this web reference is AxisService 
    '***This service contains a web method called doMergeNames, ' receiving two arguments, FName and SName, returning an XML string 
    Dim WS As New AxisService.Service1
    Dim strFullNameXML as String

    Well, strFullName is always Nothing. No error thrown, just an empty value. The exact same behaviour both for ASP .NET 1.1 and 2.0.

    Using the code

    The solution: After placing breakpoints and overloading some methods to trace the response, I found out that theservice indeed returned the correct string, just .NET had a hard time to read it (weird characters maybe?).

    Thus, the problem was solved by creating a new class that inherits from Service1 and overriding theGetWebResponse function to capture the full, correct SOAP response to a variable of mine and then parse the SOAP envelope manually.

    Here is the code:

     Collapse | Copy Code
    'I recommend you place this in a public module ' so that it is accessible from any part of your project 
    Imports System.Xml
    Imports System.Net
    Namespace AxisService
        '********that is a TERRIBLE HACK for accessing Java-Web services************** 
        'for some STUPID reason all I got was null return values 
        'I had to override the GetWebResponse and parse the SOAP return myself 
        Public Class myService1
            Inherits AxisService.Service1
            Private m_Return As String
            Public Property _ResultStr() As String
                    Return m_Return
                End Get
                Set(ByVal value As String)
                    'parse the soap string 
                    'something like the following 
                    '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
                    '<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=""> 
                    ' <soapenv:Body> 
                    ' <dlwmin:doMergeNamesResponse xmlns:dlwmin=""> 
                    ' <return>return string</return> 
                    ' </dlwmin:ddoMergeNamesResponse> 
                    ' </soapenv:Body> 
                    Dim tmpXML As New XmlDocument
                    Dim tmpValueNodeList As XmlNodeList
                    Dim tmpValueNode As XmlNode
                    tmpValueNodeList = _
                    If tmpValueNodeList.Count > 0 Then
                        tmpValueNode = tmpValueNodeList.Item(0)
                    End If
                    If Not tmpValueNode Is Nothing Then
                        Me.m_Return = tmpValueNode.InnerText
                        Me.m_Return = ""
                    End If
                End Set
            End Property
            Protected Overloads Overrides Function GetWebResponse(ByVal _
                                the_webRequest As WebRequest) As WebResponse
                Dim WR As WebResponse
                WR = MyBase.GetWebResponse(the_webRequest)
                Dim sr As New IO.StreamReader(WR.GetResponseStream)
                Me._ResultStr = sr.ReadToEnd
                Return MyBase.GetWebResponse(the_webRequest)
            End Function
        End Class
    End Namespace

    The above code stores the correct result string to the _ResultStr property. However, since you are reading theresponse stream before returning it to the rest of the execution, an exception is going to be thrown. This is expected; therefore, in order to call this web service, you will have to refer to the new class, trap the exception, and get the _ResultStr property as follows:

     Collapse | Copy Code
    Dim WS As New AxisService.myService1
    Dim strFullNameXML as String
    'trap the exception due to the stupid hack *********** 
    Catch ex As Exception
     'do something here if you want to 
    'maybe check for the specific exception number, 'I can't remember it :) 
    End Try
    Dim strReturn As String = WS._ResultStr
