    starting XML


    Well basicly i have a bunch of questions, but let me start slowly ;-)

    serverOS = linux
    webServer= Apache
    db = mysql


    Now here it comes..

    I need to make a basic test application which can send and respond / receive information from a other server using soap.

    I do not have a clue on where to start or how to create such a application. It can be either php / perl ( java if it must be so lol )

    Appreciate all the help.

    If you're familiar at all with Java Apache's Axis project makes soap fairly easy. http://ws.apache.org/axis/

    There are similar projects available for php and perl, but I can't give you any solid recommendations there.

    I stumbled across a tutorial for SOAP with php. Might be of benefit to you: http://www.phpbuilder.com/columns/kr...r20031226.php3

    Thanks for all the replies.. i already started messing with it. Having troubles installing the SOAP for testing it on a win2k server

    Pear installed however Hmmm.. no soap lol.

    the NuSOAP i did had a look @ it. Guess ill be forced to only test it on a Linux machine.. ( do not think i saw anything telling me it available for win2k 2 ;-) )

    However the NuSOAP also makes use of php

    Dont know if i am going to use the java or php yet tho..

    it seems that SOAP much more in developement with java.

    Apache 2 should be able to talk with Tomcat just fine. Here's a quick guide on getting it setup: http://www.leafdigital.com/articles/jspinstall.html

    Oke thanks.. so if i understand right..

    I can have the following running no the same Linux box ( or for testing on a win2k NTFs )

    apache 2
    tomcat 5++
    axis

    seems alot for having it run on same server ...

    but ohwell.. it be a challenge lol

    Ya, that's right. You can move the webserver onto a seperate box if you want, but you shouldn't have any problem running them on the same box.
