Testing SOAP Extension with WSDL 1.1

This section provides a tutorial example on how to configure and test SOAP Extension with a WSDL 1.1 document with my Hello Web service.

Once PHP is installed, I need to turn on the SOAP Extension with these steps:

1. If \local\php\php.ini does not exist, create it by copying the file \local\php.ini-production.

2. Edit \local\php\php.ini to set these configuration settings:

...
extension_dir = "C:\local\php\ext"
...
extension=php_soap.dll
...

3. Creating a testing PHP program, SOAP_Hello.php:

<?php 
# SOAP_Hello.php
# Copyright (c) 2009 HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
#
   $client = new SoapClient(
      "http://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_WSDL_11_SOAP.wsdl");
   echo $client->Hello("Hello from client.");
?>

4. Run the test program:

C:\herong\>\local\php\php SOAP_Hello.php

      Hello from server - herongyang.com.

This is super cool! You can call a Web service in two lines with PHP SOAP Extension.
