in reply to I do not understand how to write a SOAP server.
I am certain that there are many Monks here that can enlighten me. THANKS!
Not about SOAP :)
See for yourself: ?node_id=3989;HIT=wsdl;re=N, ?node_id=3989;HIT=SOAP;re=N
See REST-vs-SOAP a parable and The REST Dialogs
See Re: Soap::Lite and IIS problems/Re: Soap::Lite and IIS problems, this treasure trove of SOAP examples, and SOAP::Simple
The SOAP::Lite docs/http://guide.soaplite.com/ won't teach you about SOAP, neither will reading soap spec, or XML::Compile::SOAP docs / examples ...
SOAP is a lie and I don't like it , sorry
