Steps for writing a client for a SOAP Web service

A SOAP Web service contains functions that you need to call. Create a Genero BDL application that requests the functions of the service.

Genero Web Services (GWS) allows a Genero BDL program to access Web services found on the Internet. GWS supports the WSDL1.1 specification of March 15, 2002.

To explain how you code a Genero client application that accesses a SOAP Web service, this documentation uses the example of a calculator client application. This application accesses the Add operation in the MyCalculator Web service. To write the client, you simply need to access the WSDL for the Web service. To learn how to program the service, see Writing a Web server application.
