Default ksoap help needed

Please Login to Remove!

hi,

i want to use a webservice in my blackberry application. As some here in the forums suggest, ksoap2 is a way to do this. So i downloaded the jar-file (ksoap2_j2me_core-2.1.2.jar) from the projects web site.

then i had to preverify it, which i acomplished with the help of this blog: alberthuh.net Blog Archive External Jars for Blackberry Projects

it worked, but now i don't know, what to do with the new jar (same name).

please help, i am new to java and really have no idea...

The way I do it is to create a BlackBerry library out of the pre-verified jar file, according to these instructions.. Then install the lib on your BB device, either independently or include it in your app's jad (which would look like "RIM-COD-Module-Dependencies: net_rim_cldc,ksoap2_j2me_core-2.1.2). This would be done by "importing" the ksoap lib into your app, which is accomplished in various ways depending on which dev environment you're using.

I think that's about the only BB-specific stuff you'll need to do; otherwise, just put the original jar in your Java classpath and develop away.

ok, i followed the instructions in your link .

i followed the steps til the last one. now i have 2 projects in my workspace (mine and ksoap2). after making my project depend on the ksoap2 project a new parameter is added when i compile my project (->-quiet import=ksoap2.jar;)

i can import the classes in the ksoap2.jar, now.

Thanks again
