Hi all -
As interesting as SOAP and web services are, I am pressed for time.
Although I know I'll have to learn more, I simply need a full blown
working "Hello World" example - does not have to be any more
complex. My requirement is to build a web service that takes a
string and returns a string - should be very straightforward.
However, in one single response, it would be nice to see:
The .Net code
I don't know if I need a WSDL file - the O'Reilly example site
doesn't allude to one.
The single method should accept a string and return a string. In
short, if the response contains all of these files and I plop them in
place (fixing the .PM (lib) and perl path), I should be able to
compile the .Net code and execute the method against the service.
I have tried combining some of the examples found so far, and the
farthest I get is a return of "null" from the "HelloWorld" sample. I
request a working sample that compiles and runs and makes no
assumptions about my familiarity with namespaces, etc.
In short - I need the "Canonical Example for Dummies".
I'm using SOAP::Lite and VS .Net 2003 (C#).
Would any kind soul be able to help?
