Consuming SOAP Web Services

Description (last modified by Tom Trenka)

Currently there is no good way to consume SOAP web services from JavaScript?. There are libraries such as this one, but they are far from complete (e.g. support only .NET web services, but not GlassFish? ones).

It would be amazing if Dojo would be the first library to implement full support for SOAP web services!

no immediate plans to do this and no contribution, so we may have to close this out, for now

I've done it before, but it takes a bit of a huge infrastructure to handle object definition, and conflicts (in part) with dojo.rpc. But let's leave it open without a milestone, perhaps it's possible to pull somewhere.

Milestone: 1.3

Going to mark at 1.3. Either we get it on the roadmap, or we should close it out when we get there if we haven't made progress towards it.

Description: modified (diff)
Milestone: 1.3future

Going to mark this as "future"; not sure when we'd get to implementing something like this, and we'll need real XML support before going this route.

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/library/wa-dojowebresponse/index.html is a bit dated, but shows one way. If anyone wants to create a store for this, or work with rpc, it could be made to work.

I'd like to see if there's actual interest in having this as a dojo module.

I'd like to see if there's any interest as well. The main problem (as I see it) is whether or not we would be trying to implement the full design-time stack (as in, read a WSDL file and create, on the fly, a service to consume SOAP messages)...or to just be able to understand the returned packages from a SOAP service.

If we're just trying to interpret message returns, it should be fairly easy to do. Generating something like what dojox.rpc does is an entirely different story.

Resolution: patchwelcome
Status: assignedclosed

If there's interest in this, it should be done as a separate Dojo Foundation package. Closing as "patchwelcome"
