Ksoap Connect to Webservice

Hi All,


I'm very new to Blackberry and Java, while I'm trying to connect to a simple .NET web service but it takes a long time to load and outputs nothing to the screen.


So from the following code, what could i being doing wrong?


public static String callCelsiusToFahrenheit(String celcius) throws Exception

         String server_url = "http://www.w3schools.com/webservices/tempconvert.asmx";
         String soap_namespace = "http://tempuri.org/";
         String soap_action;
         String method = "CelsiusToFahrenheit";
         String result = "";
         soap_action = soap_namespace + method;
          // Build request
         SoapObject request = new SoapObject(soap_namespace, method);
         request.addProperty("Celsius", celcius);// variables that will be set
         // Build envelope
         SoapSerializationEnvelope envelope = new SoapSerializationEnvelope(SoapEnvelope.VER11);
         envelope.dotNet = true;
         // Set http transport
         HttpTransport ht = new HttpTransport(server_url);
         ht.debug = true;
             ht.call(soap_action, envelope);
             SoapPrimitive response = (SoapPrimitive)envelope.getResponse();
             result = ""+response;
          catch (Exception e)
              //print out error
          return result;
