From version 20, this feature is not available anymore. See Importing/Consuming Webservices for more details
Warning
From version 15, the Webservices generated by the versions 14 (and earlier) of WINDEV are kept for backward compatibility. We recommend that you use the new format of Webservice, available from version 15.
See for more details: Generating a Webservice.
Installing a SOAP server with IIS (version 4 or 5)
To install the SOAP server with IIS 5.1 (or IIS 4) in Windows 2000 (the IIS server must be installed on the computer):
  1. In the control panel, select "Management tools" then "Manager of Internet services".
  2. In the list on the left, choose the server to which SOAP support must be added.
  3. In the panel on the right, choose a Web site ("Default Web site" for example).
  4. Display the popup menu and choose "Properties", "Home directory" tab.
  5. Click the "Configuration" button then the "Add" button.
  6. Click "Executable" and choose the wdxxxsiis.dll file. The path must contain no space character.


    For the tests from your computer, this file is found in the "Data" sub-directory of the setup directory of WINDEV.
    To install the final SOAP server, this file is found in the setup directory of your application.
  7. In the extension control, specify ".soap".
    Note: If the ".soap" extension is already associated with a module on your server, use a different extension. In this case, this new extension must be specified in the functions that indicate the URL of the SOAP server (<URL of SOAP server> in SOAPRun for example).
  8. Uncheck "Check the existence of the file".
  9. Click OK (twice).
  10. If you want to install a standard SOAP server, the setup of the server is completed.
Installing a SOAP server with IIS (version 6)
To install the SOAP server with IIS 6 in Windows 2000 (the IIS server must be installed on the computer):
  1. In the control panel, select "Management tools" then "Manager of Internet services".
  2. In the list on the left, choose the server to which SOAP support must be added.
  3. In the panel on the right, choose a Web site ("Default Web site" for example).
  4. Display the popup menu and choose "Properties", "Home directory" tab.
  5. Click the "Configuration" button then the "Add" button.
  6. Click "Executable" and choose the wdxxxsiis.dll file. The path must contain no space character.


    For the tests from your computer, this file is found in the "Data" sub-directory of the setup directory of WINDEV.
    To install the final SOAP server, this file is found in the setup directory of your application.
  7. In the extension control, specify ".soap".
    Note: If the ".soap" extension is already associated with a module on your server, use a different extension. In this case, this new extension must be specified in the functions that indicate the URL of the SOAP server (<URL of SOAP server> in SOAPRun for example).
  8. Uncheck "Check the existence of the file".
  9. Click OK (twice).
  10. In the panel on the right, select "Extension of Web service" (or "Web Service Extensions" according to the version used). This option is used to define the execution rights of the .soap files.
  11. Choose "Add a new extension of Web service".
  12. In the window, enter:
    • The name of the extension (.soap for example).
    • The necessary files. Click "Add" and choose the wdxxxsiis.dll file.
      For the tests from your computer, this file is found in the Data sub-directory of the setup directory of WINDEV.
      To install the final SOAP server, this file is found in the setup directory of your application.
  13. Validate.
  14. Click the "Authorize" button.
Installing a Webservice

If you want to install a Webservice

15. Copy into the directory specified in the "Access path" option:
  • The XML file containing the description of the Webservice.
  • The HTML pages presenting the Webservice.
To access this XML file, use the following command line:
"http://<Name or IP Address of Soap Server>/<Name of XML File>.XML"
To run the test of this Webservice, use the following command line
"http://<NAme or IP Address of Soap Server>/index.htm"
Note: This XML file can also be copied into another directory. See the documentation about the HTTP server used for more details.
16. The Webservice is now installed on the SOAP server.
