Hi Doug,

Thanks for your reply again. I have pasted the entire code and the exception i get is a class cast exception (java.lang.ClassCastException) whenever I am trying to parse the response using getResponse() method of the envelope as given below. I really don't know what I am missing. I have tried various means, but i have just hit a dead end. I tried to find some samples online but all of those examples receives the response, prints it using toString() and that's it! Is it uncommon to use web service calls in BB? I thought that as it doesn't have a good database support, most of BB applications will be using web services extensively.

P.S - I have removed the links as BB Forums doesn't allow me to post the links
Also the XML responses I receive are given above.

	catch(org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException ex2){

Please help me resolve this problem, as it would do a world of good.
