Request and Response - Book Reservation

This section provides a mock request and a mock response for the Reservation Web service that uses SOAP 1.1 over HTTP with style='document' and operation name as the first level element name in SOAP Body to help RPC method based client API like SOAP::Lite.

Getting a mock request for Reservation_WSDL_11_SOAP_11_Document.wsdl is easy, since I learned how to use SoapUI. Here is a mock request generated with SoapUI with some data entered by myself:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope
  xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
  xmlns:ser="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">
  <soapenv:Header/>
  <soapenv:Body>
    <ser:Reservation>
      <Member>Herong Yang</hy:Member>
      <ItemList>
        <Item>Java Web Services</Item>
        <Item>SOAP Programming</Item>
      </ItemList>
    </ser:Reservation>
  </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

Notice that:

Here is a mock response generated with SoapUI 3.0.1 with some data entered by myself:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope
  xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
  xmlns:ser="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">
  <soapenv:Header/>
  <soapenv:Body>
    <ser:ReservationResponse>
      <Number>20080808</Number>
      <Status>Wait</Status>
    </ser:ReservationResponse>
  </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>
