INTRODUCTION
==============

The goal of the SOAPpy team is to provide a full-featured SOAP library
for Python that is very simple to use and that fully supports dynamic
interaction between clients and servers.

- SOAP Proxy for RPC client code
- SOAP Server framework for RPC server code

FEATURES
--------
- Handles all SOAP 1.0 types
- Handles faults
- Allows namespace specification
- Allows SOAPAction specification
- Homogeneous typed arrays
- Supports multiple schemas
- Header support (mustUnderstand and actor)
- XML attribute support
- Multi-referencing support (Parser/Builder)
- Understands SOAP-ENC:root attribute
- Good interop, passes all client tests for Frontier, SOAP::LITE, SOAPRMI
- Encodings
- SSL clients (with Python compiled with OpenSSL support)
- SSL servers (with Python compiled with OpenSSL support and M2Crypto installed)
- Encodes XML tags per SOAP 1.2 name mangling specification (Gregory Warnes)
- Automatic stateful SOAP server support (Apache v2.x) (blunck2)
- WSDL client support
- WSDL server support

INSTALLATION
============

USING GITHUB
------------

    You can install SOAPpy and its dependencies directly from GitHub using PIP:

        pip install -e "git+http://github.com/kiroky/SOAPpy.git@develop#egg=SOAPpy"

REQUIRED PACKAGES
------------------

    - wstools


OPTIONAL PACKAGES
-----------------

    - pyGlobus, optional support for Globus,
      <http://www-itg.lbl.gov/gtg/projects/pyGlobus/>

    - M2Crypto.SSL, optional support for server-side SSL
      <http://sandbox.rulemaker.net/ngps/m2/>

    - If Python is compiled with SSL support (Python 2.3 does so by
      default), client-side use of SSL is supported

INSTALLATION STEPS
------------------

    As of version 0.9.8 SOAPpy can be installed using the standard python
    package installation tools.

    To install:

      1) Unpack the distribution package:

         On Windows, use your favorite zip file uncompression tool.

         On Unix::

             $ tar -xvzf SOAPpy-$VERSION$.tar.gz

         If you have gnu tar, otherwise
            ::

             $ gzcat SOAPpy-$VERSION$.tar.gz | tar -xvf -

      2) Change into the source directory
         ::

                 cd SOAPpy-$VERSION$

      3) Compile the package::

                $ python setup.py build

      4) Install the package

         On Windows::

                $ python setup.py install

         On Unix install as the owner of the python directories
         (usally root)::

                $ su root
                Password: XXXXXX
                $ python setup.py install


DOCUMENTATION
=============
QUICK START
-----------

A simple "Hello World" http SOAP server::

        import SOAPpy
        def hello():
            return "Hello World"
        server = SOAPpy.SOAPServer(("localhost", 8080))
        server.registerFunction(hello)
        server.serve_forever()

And the corresponding client::

        import SOAPpy
        server = SOAPpy.SOAPProxy("http://localhost:8080/")
        print server.hello()

BASIC TUTORIAL
--------------
Mark Pilgrims _Dive Into Python, published in printed form by
Apress and online at at http://diveintopython.org provides a
nice tutorial for SOAPpy in Chapter 12, "SOAP Web Services".
See http://diveintopython.org/soap_web_services .

OTHER DOCUMENTATION
-------------------

For further information see the files in the docs/ directory.

Note that documentation is one of SOAPpy's current weak points.
