BC&JA are happy to announce the latest version of gSOAP on OpenVMS!
The Release Notes contain information on installation and operation of the software.
The major additions in this release follow:
gSOAP provides a powerful mechanism for extending its capabilities through the use of plug-ins, and a variety of pre-existing plug-in modules are available. These plug-ins are now included with the OpenVMS kit and may be found in the gsoap$root:[plugin] directory. There are plug-ins to support HTTP GET requests, WS-Security, and many more. It should be noted that not all of the supplied plug-ins have been tested on OpenVMS, and the authors would appreciate feedback on any issues that are encountered.
The gSOAP DOM implementation is now provided and may be utilised by linking applications with the object library gsoap$root:[lib]gsoapdom.olb. Please note that this library also includes SSL support, and it is therefore necessary to link applications with the OpenVMS SSL libraries (see Section 4.4). This requirement will be removed in future releases.
WS-Security (WSSE) example
An example program that illustrates the use of the WSSE plug-in is now included with the distribution. This fairly complicated example also uses the gSOAP DOM implementation and SSL. It should be noted that it will be necessary to obtain new certificates in order to use the SSL functions.
Please do let us know how you get on with this latest kit! As always, send an email to brett.r.cameron(AT)gmail.com and johndapps(AT)gmail.com stating whether you require Alpha or Integrity or both kits.
