Detergent - An emulsifying Erlang SOAP library

Detergent helps make SOAP interactions in Erlang uhh... cleaner (pun totally intended)!

History

Most code in Detergent was originally extracted from the SOAP implementation in Yaws, the idea being to make this more readily available without having to install Yaws itself.

There are obviously changes in Detergent that make it different from the Yaws implementation, and these will continue. Hopefully these changes make Detergent easier to use.

Dependencies

Detergent depends on the excellent Erlsom library for all XML interactions. Erlsom takes away quite a bit of the pain of working with XML.

Building

Detergent uses rebar for building and wraps it i a Makefile for convenience.

First clone Detergent from GitHub:

$ git clone git://github.com/devinus/detergent.git

Then change into the newly created directory:

$ cd detergent

And make:

$ make

Rebar will first pull in Erlsom as a dependency from GitHub, attempt to build it, then build Detergent.

Testing

To test your Detergent build, start an Erlang shell and run the detergent:qtest/0 function.

The qtest/0 function attempts to call a web service at webservicex.net to retrieve the weather repeat for Boston.

$ erl -pa deps/erlsom/ebin ebin
> inets:start().
> detergent:qtest().
