Action Web Service Gem

hi i am using 'actionwebservice' for passing SOAP requests.

Version 2.3.2 for actionwebservice is " datanoise-actionwebservice"

For installing the gem when i used,

gem install datanoise-actionwebservice

got this error,
ERROR: could not find gem datanoise-actionwebservice locally or in a repository

& found this is the right way to install

gem install datanoise-actionwebservice --source http://gems.github.com

Add this line to your config/environment.rb file in the initializer section:

config.gem 'datanoise-actionwebservice', :lib => 'actionwebservice'

Generating API controller

ActionWebService gem includes web_service generator that you can use like this:

$ ./script/generate web_service post

Define your API

Open app/services/post_api.rb file and add methods that your service exposes:

class PostApi < returns =""> [[:string]]

API implementation

We are going to use direct dispatching mode, so all methods that implement our API go directly to PostController itself:

class PostController < ApplicationController wsdl_service_name 'Post' web_service_api PostApi web_service_scaffold :invocation if Rails.env == 'development' def get_posts ["Post 1", "Post 2"] end end wsdl url:

After installing the gem, Have you restarted your server?

wat to do next ?

Srikanth Jeeva said...

check if the gem version is 2.3.2 .. If so, i'm not sure why this error occurs.

Srikanth Jeeva said...

i have used this long back and it worked for me that time. Might be gem and ruby versions problem, not sure abt it. Now i'm using Restful Webservice.
