Calling GetSpeech SOAP 1.2 Web Service

This section provides a tutorial example on how to run to call the GetSpeech SOAP 1.2 Web service provided by

To use, I need a SOAP 1.1 request XML message. Here is one example, soap_1_1_GetSpeech_req.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap12:Envelope xmlns:xsi=""
    <GetSpeech xmlns="">
      <Request>Cowards die many times before their deaths</Request>

Here is the execution result of

\herong>java HttpURLConnectionGetSpeech12
   soap_1_2_GetSpeech_req.xml res.xml

Request length: 416
Response length: 725

\herong>type res.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap=""
    <GetSpeechResponse xmlns="">
        &lt;SPEECH&gt;&lt;PLAY&gt;JULIUS CAESAR&lt;/PLAY&gt;
        &lt;SPEAKER&gt;CAESAR&lt;/SPEAKER&gt;Cowards die many times
        before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but 
        once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard. It seems 

Wonderful. My works perfectly too.
