DESCRIPTION ^

This Apache Perl module provides the ability to add support for SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) protocol with easy configuration (either in .conf or in .htaccess file). This functionality should give you lightweight option for hosting SOAP services and greatly simplify configuration aspects. This module inherites functionality from SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache component of SOAP::Lite module.

CONFIGURATION ^

The module can be placed in <Location>, <Directory>, <Files>, <FilesMatch> directives in main server configuration areas or directly in .htaccess file.

All parameters should be quoted and can be separated with commas or spaces for lists ("a, b, c") and with 'wide arrows' and commas for hash parameters ("key1 => value1, key2 => value2").

All options that you can find in SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache component are available for configuration. Here is the description of most important ones.

dispatch_to (LIST)

Specifies path to directory that contains Perl modules you'd like to give access to, or just list of modules (for preloaded modules).

  PerlSetVar dispatch_to "/Your/Path/To/Deployed/Modules, Module::Name, Module::method"
options (HASH)

Specifies list of options for your module, for example threshold for compression. Future versions will support more options. See SOAP::Transport::HTTP documentation for other options.

  PerlSetVar options "compress_threshold => 10000"
