How to create correct SoapBindingStub using 'Session Id as string' only w/o making 'login'?

Hi all.

I need create SoapBindingStub object w/o calling

LoginResult lr = binding.login(userName, password);

I need to avoid the 'full scenario':

SoapBindingStub binding = (SoapBindingStub) new SforceServiceLocator().getSoap();
LoginResult lr = binding.login(userName, password);
binding = (SoapBindingStub) new SforceServiceLocator().getSoap(new URL(lr.getServerUrl()));
_SessionHeader sh = new _SessionHeader();
binding.setHeader(new SforceServiceLocator().getServiceName().getNamespaceURI(), "SessionHeader", sh);

The main idea is:
I want to recieve session ID value from the web-link then I want to create correct/working SoapBindingStub object WITHOUT invocation binding.login(userName, password) method.

is is possible to do? How is better accomplish it?

Now I'm trying something like that:

SforceServiceLocator locator = new SforceServiceLocator();
System.out.println("----- service URL is = " + locator.getSoapAddress()); // URL is correct !
binding = (SoapBindingStub) locator.getSoap();

// I can try to make a dummy call but it doesn't help
// binding.describeGlobal();

_SessionHeader sh = new _SessionHeader();
binding.setHeader(new SforceServiceLocator().getServiceName().getNamespaceURI(), "SessionHeader", sh);

I'm getting error (on the dummy binding.describeGlobal() or on the real subseqWS call):

faultCode: {}Server
faultString: Destination URL not reset. The URL returned from login must be set in the SforceService
{}fault: UNKNOWN_EXCEPTIONtionCode> Destination URL not reset. The URL returned from login must be set in the SforceService
Destination URL not reset. The URL returned from login must be set in th
e SforceService

Hi Blandger,

You're almost there.  You still need to reset the url from the default.  When you ran wsdl2java the www endpoint from the wsdl was designated as you default endpoint in SforceServiceLocator.

To change the endpoint you need to add one line of code after

binding.setHeader(new SforceServiceLocator().getServiceName().getNamespaceURI(), "SessionHeader", sh);

binding._setProperty(SoapBindingStub.ENDPOINT_ADDRESS_PROPERTY, serverUrl);

The serverUrl parameter is from the Web link.  You include it the same way you do the sessionId.  The merge field for the serverUrl is {!API_Enterprise_Server_URL_50} for the enterprise wsdl and {!API_Partner_Server_URL_50} for the partner wsdl.  These values are from the API Fields field type.


Is it okay in terms of best practices to update the api session & url right before the soap call?
Also, I am thinking about putting that in a synchronized block to make sure if I get a request from a different user at the same time it doesn't make the soap call with the wrong user.

We are a pretty small company with a small userbase (about 15 people) so I think that would work for now.
If we need to scale it, it should be pretty easy to implement a pooling system or use a factory of some sort.
The app that makes the soap call is using Spring so we could probably make something work with that.

If anyone has a good idea for a quick solution to that, let me know.

Otherwise, I am mostly interested in my first question.



Following is the code snippet which we are using to connect with the sales force stubs:
