Deserializing problem and XmlElementAttribute

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Hi experts,

I'm facing a problem while deserilizing the XML response from a webservice. But this problem occurs only if the client is calling the webservice from linux machine. If the client calls from windows machine, then everything worked fine. I tried to use XmlElementAttribute to override the namespace, but when i used this, I am unable to get the response on windows machine also.
Any help will be appreciated.

the web service is in .NET and the proxy is generated through wsdl.exe. I can say that there is a deserialize problem because the linux box is getting the response back but it's not able to deserialize it.
well my question was more about what kind of application from the Linux box calls the service


The problem was solved. It was the proxy problem.
