SOAP::Message - Really simple SOAP
Simple SOAP for the unwashed masses
use SOAP::Message; ## Procedural interface # Make SOAP my $message = SOAP::Message::create( version => '1.1', body => $xml_data, ); # Receive SOAP my ( $header,$body ) = SOAP::Message::parse( $incoming ); ## OO interface # Set some defaults up... my $object = SOAP::Message->new( version => '1.2', prefix => 'SOAP' ); # Then just continue as normal... my $message = $object->create( body => $body, header => $header ); # And for convenience... my ( $header, $body ) = $object->parse( $incoming );
90% of using SOAP appears to be jumping through many hoops to do something pretty simple - putting an XML wrapper around another piece of XML, or removing the XML wrapper around a piece of XML.

version - which can either be
1.2. Defaults to
1.1. This affects what the namespace will be:
body - which is the message body, and can be anything you fancy. Optional.
header - which is the header, and can be anything you want. Optional.
prefix - which is the prefix we use. Defaults to 'env'. Common examples
env and so on. Optional. We don't perform any validation on this.
Returns a string containing your SOAP message.
Parses a SOAP message in a string. Returns a list containing the header and the body as strings.
parse(), but returns
XML::XPath::Nodeset objects instead.
Accepts the same arguments as
create(), and sets them as the defaults for subsequent calls to
