Connecting to Microsoft CRM 2011 Online from Java?

Are you interested in connecting to the Microsoft Dynamics from Java?

Here is the Java code example that shows the invocation of the RetrievePolicy, RetrieveCrmTicket, RetrieveMultiple and other MS CRM 4.0 web services over SOAP:

Umm ... instead of using xml templates, why don't you generate stubs via Java2WSDL?

Hi there,

I've tried to use the class you've posted. I've created a project in eclipse with this code but no luck yet.

Do i have to have a gooddata account to use this?

If not can you help me setup a project to connect to my mscrm online deployment?

Thanks in advance.

This is using the the older 2007 endpoint from CRM 4 to connect to CRM 2011. While CRM 2011 is backwards compatible with this, this functionality is deprecated and "will be removed in a future release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011".

I recommend switching to use the new 2011 endpoint for connecting to CRM 2011.

when i call connect in MyDynamicsWrapper
method retrieveCrmTicket() throws exceptions:

com.sun.xml.internal.messaging.saaj.SOAPExceptionImpl: com.sun.xml.internal.messaging.saaj.SOAPExceptionImpl: Invalid Content-Type:text/plain. Is this an error message instead of a SOAP response?

Hey, with the 2011 endpoints I get the following error:

Bad Response; Cannot process the message because the content type 'text/xml; charset=utf-8' was not the expected type 'application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8'.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

A error occurred while completing process - java.lang.InterruptedException: org.apache.axis2.wsdl.codegen.CodeGenerationException: java.lang.RuntimeException: can't serialize the policy ...

Any idea?
