Consuming webservice in LN 6
Another good one that shows a simple client side method is found here (snippet as follows):
Dim Client As Variant
Set Client = CreateObject("MSSOAP.SoapClient")
'Initialize connection to the Web Service
'Call our simple GetEmailAddress
function provided by Web service
Dim result As String
result = Client.getJoke()
'output result to message box
Messagebox result, 48, "Get Joke"
There is also an open source project which produces a java stub to consume the webservice called stubby, however, still not sure whether is meets my counterparts requirements.
There is also another reference on how to write do some of the coding in java - found here. Another reference talking about webservice in LN 8.5 is found here.
