SOAP 1.1
The following is a sample SOAP 1.1 request and response. The placeholders shown need to be replaced with actual values.

Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length
SOAPAction: ""

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

One of the generated classes should have been named along the lines of "XXXClient". This is your proxy class. It should have one or more methods which you can call to invoke your service. You'll need to see which parameters and return values these functions use. Create instances of such parameter classes and populate them accordingly. For the response, you should simply need to capture that value via a variable of the same type as mentioned in the function signatures.
