Instead of generating an interface for a WSDL endpoint as shown in the introductory examples, we can use the dynamic interface to pass in/out any arbitrary XML blob over REST or SOAP.

So here is a dynamic web service invocation using XMLBeans as the body and result of the documents. Note that XmlObject instances could be used in this example, there's no real need to have a concrete, autogenerated schema when using this mechanism (other than performance).


Here's the same example again using a REST client


The API for the dynamic invocation API currently works with XMLBeans but should ultimately work with JAX-RPC, JAXB, Castor, XStream etc.
