    Client call fails using JBossWS

    Tom N Newbie

      Hi, I have a client that causes a web service to throw a 500 error when it uses JBossWS to make the service call. For some reason the same request succeeds when Metro is used. I have WireShark captures of the failed and successful requests, and there are only a few very minor differences that I can find.

      (captures are below).

      Here are the differences I see:

      1. JBossWS streams the request body, so it sets Transfer-Encoding: chunked and does not set a Content-Length header. Not that it's excusable for a server to barf over this sort of thing, but this seems like the biggest difference between the two. Is it possible to make JBossWS _not_ stream the request?

      2. JBossWS adds a "Pragma" header and a custom "JBoss-Remoting-Version" header. Can't imagine these are the problem.

      3. JBossWS omits the XML declaration header in the request body, and happens to use "env" for the SOAP namespace, while Metro uses "S." Again, I don't imagine this is the problem, but just for kicks, can this be customized?

      I'm going to use curl to see if I can't narrow down the problem further. Unfortunately the actual text message that the server responds with on the 500 error is generic and doesn't provide any insight into the problem.

      Thanks for any insight.

      Good request:
