0.6.0 (2020-??-??)

Project has been renamed to soapfish to distinguish it from the legacy soapbox project and allow for publishing the project on PyPI. Note that the rename effectively makes it backwards incompatible with previous releases due to API breakage.

Due to lack of time to maintain the original soapbox project, soapbox been retired by Flight Data Services who now contribute to and recommend the use of the soapfish fork.

  • Security:
    • Fixed potential security issue - pattern restrictions were not applied correctly
  • Features:
    • Add support for (date range currently limited by
    • Add support relative schema paths (#49)
    • Add support to string restrictions length, minLength, maxLength, whiteSpace (#67)
    • Add support for choice indicator in ComplexTypes (#39)
      • Fixes validation of matching XML documents - previously sequences were always assumed - and code generation from WSDL/XSD.
      • Patch contributed by Martin Mrose, tests written by Felix Schwarz
    • Implemented a dispatcher for Flask (#53)
    • Implement service.route function to avoid changes to generated code (#68)
    • Changed to use requests instead of httplib2.
    • Added support for multiple inline schema imports and includes.
    • Added support for import of other WSDL documents.
    • Support for reordering of schema imports and includes and handle circular imports.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Make xsd.Decimal field accept Python Decimal (#52)
    • Fix relative imports with remote files. (#96)
    • Schema validation now also uses imported schemas correctly
    • Various fixes for wsdl2py and xsd2py when using Python 3
    • Fix exception in SOAPDispatcher when a handler does not return a SOAPResponse
    • Fix bad WSDL generation due to unresolved type references
    • Correctly apply pattern restrictions for simple types
    • Pattern restriction was not correctly serialized when generating schemas
    • Omit minOccurs=1 and maxOccurs=1 in xsd2py as these are the default. (The latter produces invalid code because xsd.Element doesn't support it.)
    • Restored ability to validate parsed XML using a soapfish schema in ComplexType
    • Fixed WSDL classes to more closely match the WSDL specifications.
    • Fixed WSDL classes to correctly define SOAP extensibility elements.
    • Removed reverse references from WSDL classes.
    • Fixed query string handling in dispatch to be more robust.
    • Support importing documents over HTTPS.
    • Fixed detection of XML schema namespaces.
    • Attempts to fix handling of remote vs local imports.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Renamed SoapboxRequest and SoapboxResponse to SOAPRequest and SOAPResponse respectively.
    • Support Python 3.6+, Django 1.11, 2.2 & 3.0, and Flask 1.0.0+
    • Improved testing against different versions of Python, Django & Flask.
    • Improved entry points for generation scripts - additional flags, etc.
    • Moved to using an external dependency for iso8601

0.5.1 (2014-06-12)

  • Miscellaneous:
    • Downgrade log level on soap action discovery.

0.5.0 (2014-06-12)

    • Make elements inherit from schema namespace
    • Better logging in soap/stub
    • soap12: Quotes around action in HTTP header

0.4.0 (2014-05-06)

Project forked by Felix Schwarz as soapbox-bsd due to licensing incompatibilities.

Flight Data Services started using the GPL-incompatible OSL for the soapbox project. This fork is based on the last soapbox commit still using the original 3-clause BSD license (7d3516fe). Later on the fork received significant contributions from Thomas Recouvreux and Xavier Fernandez (Polyconseil).

    • Added compatibility with Python 3
    • Added framework-agnostic SOAP dispatcher to support virtually any web framework.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Preserve elementFormDefault attribute in Schema
    • Many bug fixes for code generation and XML rendering
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Ability to use custom SOAP headers
    • Middleware stack to hook into SOAP request processing
    • Better handling of invalid SOAP requests, e.g. missing bodies, invalid actions.

0.3.2 (2012-03-09)

  • Miscellaneous:
    • Initial support for variable URL scheme and host
    • Test suite executes
