Dear SOAP::Lite User Community,
Many weeks ago I announced the availability of SOAP::Lite v0.60 and a new
soaplite.com website. Well 0.60 is out and running, but the website still
has not been published. (Although, it is still accessible at:
It has not been published as we are waiting for
a little administrative work to get it out there. Everyone please keep
your fingers crossed, and hope it gets released soon. I myself am anxious
to see it up.
But I digress. Development has not stagnated. Work has begun on an
important piece of the SOAP::Lite puzzle that has been missing for far too
long: a WSDL2Perl utility.
The process of building such a tool begins with determining what should
the ideal SOAP::Lite Service module look like, and once that is
determined, finding the best way to generate that code from a WSDL. Well,
we are pretty close to defining what that module should look like, and it
so far is capable of:
* serializing and deserializing complex types
* supporting multiple port bindings
* support for SOAP over HTTP based Web services (the most common of course)
I am using the WS-I Interoperability Demo as the basis for my work. In
theory, if we get that to work, it will work with everything. Knock on
In any event, I wanted to let the community know what is going on so no
one loses hope... so to speak.
