    In my program I have to use SOAP web service request.
    First I studied Erel's GET example (Curreny.sbp) and POST example and both of them were working on . I also tried SOAP request using example given on site (HTTP-POST method as it was suggested). However I have no success and the problem was not in building SOAP message because I used one from web site. It seems me that HTTP library is missing something like SOAPaction property.
    Please see CurrencyConvertor Web Service .

    I hope that Erel has comment on that and/or that someone has working example of SOAP web request.

    Thanks in advance.

    You will need to use the Door library to add the SOAPAction header.
    See the attached example (CurrencyConverter using Soap messages).

    Edit: File was updated to support Basic4ppc V6.50.

    Hello Erel,

    I tried out ...
    ... but there was the following message:
    I tried it on the Desktop (with active internetconnection) ans also on the PPC (also with active internetconnection), it´s always the same.

    Could it be, that it doesn´t work with Basic4PPC in the Version 6.5?

    Thanks for your support.

    You need the latest Door library that came with version 6.50 and to add the module name to the Request object at line 60.
    It now runs (but the site times out for me!).

    The "Communication Error" is a catch-all message in the Errorlabel handling as Basic4ppc doesn't let you see the reason for the error. To do so you need my Exceptions library which gives you access to the Exception error message.

    More help / comments


    I am willing to purchase an hour of someone's time if they can comment and/or walk me through a detailed explaination of this code. Perhaps even helping me make it a bit more "Generic" so we can make a quick and easy "soap" starter application.

    I am willing to post the results to the group as well... Let me know if interested.
