Calling Java Web Service as a soap request from .Net(C#)

Hi Friends,
I am trying to call a Java Web Service from .Net using C#. This is a SOAP request that I am making.

XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
req.Headers.Add("SOAPAction", "\"\"");
req.ContentType = "text/xml;charset=\"utf-8\"";
req.Accept = "text/xml";
req.Method = "POST";
Stream stm = req.GetRequestStream();
WebResponse resp = req.GetResponse();
stm = resp.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader r = new StreamReader(stm);
string sRet = r.ReadToEnd();
WriteLogFile("SOAP Response:" + sRet);
return sRet;

When I try the above request it fails and the Java client doesnt get any request message. But when I change the
req.Method = "POST"; to
req.Method = "updateTableFromXML";
then the java client can see the message with the method name(UPDATETABLEFROMXML) that I am calling in the web service.
Now they want me to send the parameter along with the method name. I am having difficulties in sending this parameter which is an xml file stored in an string.
Please advice how can i resolve this issue.

The above method worked for me.
req.method = "POST";

The problem was I was trying to access a web service which has soap format as RPC. In Java the request will work fine because soap opertion style is RPC by default and in .Net it gives problem as Document is the default.
