Hi All,

I need to create a couple of webservices, where I retrieve info from the database.

Found this example on php.net while searching for examples:

class MyClass {
   public function helloWorld() {

     return 'Hallo Welt '. print_r(func_get_args(), true);
   }
 }

 try {
   $server = new SOAPServer(
     NULL,
     array(
      'uri' => 'http://localhost/soap/server.php'
     )
   );

   $server->setClass('MyClass');
   $server->handle();
 }

 catch (SOAPFault $f) {
   print $f->faultstring;
 }

?>

 // client.php:

<?php
 $client = new SoapClient(null, array(
       'location' => "http://localhost/soap/server.php",
       'uri'      => "http://localhost/soap/server.php",
       'trace'    => 1 ));

 echo $return = $client->__soapCall("helloWorld",array("world"));

I can see the logic here - And am wondering if oit is that simple..? Dont I need to create a WSDL file for this to work?

Is it correct understood that PHP has a function which creates the WSDL file automatically?

So for starters, is the above sufficient to get me going?

It should be, but it's been a while since I've used SOAPServer with PHP.

A WSDL is needed when you want to publicly expose your API. Since you are writing both, it may not be necessary.
