Dear Experts!

I am trying to call a SOAP based web service using AJAX.

How do I address a specific function/method in the web service?

And which parameter name should be used for the POST of the SOAP XML?

I do not want to use any js libs.

I expect I should use a parameter for the name of the function/method in the web service, but which name should this parameter have?

The web service is PHP based.

The WS is entirely SOAP based, only using a SOAP request XML message and SOAP reponse XML message.

In anticipation
Thank you

Best regards,
Henrik

you can address a specific as:

http://your_web_service_uri/method_name

see the following link for passing parameters using POST:

name of parameters should be same as the names used in your web service.

Dear devlab2012!

Thanks for reply.

Anyway, then how do I make a PHP file accepting '/method_name' as query string?

Thank you,

Henrik

I am not very sure about how it works in PHP, but you can try passing it as a query string variable as follows:

http://mydomain.com/my_web_service.php?MethodName=MyTestMethod

In your php file, you can check the value of MethodName using $_GET["MethodName"] and do the processing accordingly.

Also, check the following link for creating a basic web service in PHP:
