PHPRiot.com is back with another installment in their "Zend Framework 101" series with a look at the Zend_Soap component to create a SOAP service and client.
In this article I will introduce you to the Zend_Soap component of the Zend Framework. This component allows you to easily create and consume SOAP web services. We will create a simple web service with several methods using Zend_Soap_Server, and consume the service with Zend_Soap_Client.
They start with a brief look at how SOAP works before moving on to the code - creating the SOAP server code followed by the client. Their simple application takes in age information and returns back a simple, formatted string.
