External Service

Hi Experts,

I am using a button which is using a javascript to invoke an apex class. Basically i want to update my external database using the Apex class. But if click on the button i get an exception: args not specified.

var con = confirm("Are you sure you want to create Northstar account for this user?")
if (con)
var action = sforce.apex.execute("APiNorthstar","addAccount");
catch (exception)
alert ("Failed : " + exception);

Apex Class
public class APiNorthstar {

public static void addAccount(){

//Get new Account
Account accs = new Account();

comNorthstarApi.NorthstarServiceHttpSoap11Endpoint stub = new
String Id = accs.Id;
String name =;
String acc = accs.Account_Alias__c;
Boolean setName = stub.setNa(name);
Boolean setAccountAlias = stub.setAcca(acc);

Do anyone know why this? please help!

I guess you must specify an empty args array.
Try this
var action = sforce.apex.execute("APiNorthstar","addAccount",args:{});
