DESCRIPTION

Generates a interface class for a SOAP web service described by a WSDL definition.

The following classes are created:

  • A interface class for every service

    Interface classes are what you will mainly deal with: They provide a method for accessing every web service method.

  • A typemap for every service

    Typemaps are used internally by SOAP::WSDL for parsing the SOAP message into object trees.

    If the WSDL definition is incomplete, you may need to add some lines to your typemap. Especially definitions for faults are sometimes left out.

    Additional typemap content may be included by passing a file name as typemap_include (mi) option.

  • A type class for every element, complexType or simpleType definition

    You may need to write additional type classes if your WSDL is incomplete.

    For writing your own lib classes, see SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::Element, SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::ComplexType and SOAP::WSDL::XSD::Typelib::SimpleType.
