Outdated: SOAP 1.2 Request and Response of GetSpeech

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use SocketRequestResponse.pl to send a SOAP 1.1 request for the GetSpeech Web service provided by www.xmlme.com. The response of GetSpeech received looks very nice.

Note that the "GetSpeech" Web service provided by xmlme.com is no longer available.

After finishing SOAP 1.1 test, I continued to use SocketRequestResponseBinary.pl to send a SOAP 1.2 request for the GetSpeech Web service.

According to the instructions given at http://www.xmlme.com/WSShakespeare.asmx?op=GetSpeech, I prepared by first request sample, soap_1_2_GetSpeech.req:

POST /WSShakespeare.asmx HTTP/1.1
Host: www.xmlme.com
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 416

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap12:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
  xmlns:soap12="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
  <soap12:Body>
    <GetSpeech xmlns="http://xmlme.com/WebServices">
      <Request>Cowards die many times before their deaths</Request>
    </GetSpeech>
  </soap12:Body>
</soap12:Envelope>

I carefully counted the number of bytes of the request content including the last \r\n and entered 416 in the Content-Length header line.

Here is the test result of my sample SOAP 1.2 request:

C:\herong>SocketRequestResponseBinary.pl www.xmlme.com 80 
   soap_1_2_GetSpeech.req soap_1_2.res

C:\herong>more soap_1_2.res
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Connection: close
Date: ... 2009
Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727
Cache-Control: private, max-age=0
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 725

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope"
  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <soap:Body>
    <GetSpeechResponse xmlns="http://xmlme.com/WebServices">
      <GetSpeechResult>
        &lt;SPEECH&gt;&lt;PLAY&gt;JULIUS CAESAR&lt;/PLAY&gt;
        &lt;SPEAKER&gt;CAESAR&lt;/SPEAKER&gt;Cowards die many times
        before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but 
        ...&lt;/SPEECH&gt;
      </GetSpeechResult>
    </GetSpeechResponse>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

Very nice again. My first SOAP 1.2 test with SocketRequestResponseBinary.pl worked correctly.

The SOAP response message received as a single line without any line breaks. I reformatted it before including it here.
