Webservices client

Postby chrisdouglass » 12 Jun 2007, 18:06

Alex/et al,

Are there any classes in POCO for invoking web services? I'm considering using gSoap if not. I can't find anything looking through the docs/lib. All of the primitives are there: xml, http, etc. But, I don't see anything SOAP specific.

Anyone ever combine POCO and gSoap? Initially I want to target Win32 and Mac with the finished product and later Linux and BSD.

Thanks!

Hello Chris,
there is SOAP support available
but it's part of our commercial package.

You can take a look at its features at

There is Web library in sandbox and SOAP package in it, but it is not complete yet. In fact, I have only begun it some time ago. Larry Lewis is currently working on it, but when it will be available, I do not know (he mentioned a couple of weeks about a week ago). If Larry is reading this, he may give you more info on it. If you are willing to help, email me at(aleskx, dot(gmail, com)) and I'll hook you up with him.

I've tried gSOAP long time ago and gave it up in favor of Systinet (which is not free, btw). My main objection to was that it is mainly a C-oriented tool. When used with C++ the double underscores (like__this) in generated names may collide with standard reserved names (this falls into the same category as names beginning with underscore and capital letter _Likethis).

Alex.

I've written a SOAP implementation for another project; however, I'm still searching for the time to POCOize it. My requirement was for a extremely lightweight SOAP client without all of the WSDL/stub/skeleton/object serialization overhead. I will try to get this submitted to the POCO guys shortly.
