I want to use a stand alone application (maybe Java Swing or Windows
Forms)(with some toolkit) to send a SOAP message to an
intermediary/server environment. Do I
need a Web server receiving and processing the SOAP over HTTP or can
an application server (with some API like Apache SOAP/Axis) receive
and process SOAP Messaging(/XML Document)/literal? There are a lot
of examples in Internet where a browser accesses a servlet on a Web
server, but what if I use a stand alone application. They gray zone
between app server and Web server makes it even more complicated.
Thanks in advance!
