Apache Axis2™ is a Web Services / SOAP / WSDL engine, the successor to the widely used Apache Axis SOAP stack. There are two implementations of the Apache Axis2 Web services engine - Apache Axis2/Java and Apache Axis2/C While you will find all the information on Apache Axis2/Java here, you can visit the Apache Axis2/C Web site for Axis2/C implementation information. Apache Axis2, Axis2, Apache, the Apache feather logo, and the Apache Axis2 project logo are trademarks of The Apache Software Foundation.
This is a follow-on post concerning the building of a simple WCF services in SharePoint 2010, my caveat for this style of post (notes to self) is that the information is intended truly as a “note to self” and so written that way. By now, this info is fully addressed within MSDN and several other folks around the “interwebs”. I’ll simply present the technical differences and some related bits and pieces I find useful – if you find this post useful then all the better. For now I won’t dive into how the data would be directly returned from a class, perhaps leave that for another post.
SOAP, or Simple Object Access Protocol is an XML-based object invocation protocol. SOAP was originally developed for distributed applications to communicate over HTTP and through corporate firewalls. SOAP defines the use of XML and HTTP to access services, objects and servers in a platform-independent manner. SOAP provides a standard object invocation protocol built on Internet standards, using HTTP as the transport and XML for data encoding. A major design goal for SOAP was for simplicity and extensibility.
<?php $client = new SoapClient ( "some.wsdl" ); $client = new SoapClient ( "some.wsdl" , array( 'soap_version' => SOAP_1_2 )); $client = new SoapClient ( "some.wsdl" , array( 'login' => "some_name" , 'password' => "some_password" )); $client = new SoapClient ( "some.wsdl" , array( 'proxy_host' => "localhost" , 'proxy_port' => 8080 ));

Environment: Visual C++ 6.0, Windows 98/NT/2000 Section 1: Introduction In this article, I'll show you how to build a SOAP client using Visual C++. This tutorial gives you a hands-on introduction to using the SOAP API. SOAP is emerging as a very popular protocol for exchanging information. It's relatively simple and designed to work with HTTP, SMTP, and other such protocols.
