The first thing you're going to discover is that Rails is very
opinionated about how to do web services. Rails is very much (as am I)
in the REST web service camp. REST is very integrated into the workflow
of Rails application since version 2.0.

In fact the older SOAP based web service support was removed from the
core of Rails with the release of Rails 2.0. The SOAP support is not
moved out to a separate gem and might be getting maintained by someone.

Maybe this would work if you really feel you must do SOAP, or are forced
to for some reason:

Correction: ...support is NOW moved...

I really wish there was a way to edit one's own posts on this site...
