Hello_There.php - First Example of SOAP
This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the SOAP extension to call a Web service provided by herongyang.com to get a greeting message.
To show you an example of how PHP SOAP extension can be used in a SOAP client application, here is my
first SOAP PHP script, Hello_There.php
<?php # Hello_There.php
#- Copyright (c) 2015, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
$client = new SoapClient
echo("\nReturning value of Hello() call: ".$client->Hello());
Run it while your computer is connected to the Internet. You will get:
Returning value of Hello() call:
Hello from server - herongyang.com.
Very nice. This confirms that:
- PHP SOAP extension is easy to use. Two statements are enough to call a SOAP service.
- You PHP SOAP extension is installed correctly and working.
- PHP SOAP extension supports WSDL.
