ActionWebService was dropped from Rails back in Rails 2 (about 5 years
ago). There are some forks still active:

https://github.com/datanoise/actionwebservice

but it’s mostly unmaintained. You may want another, more active, SOAP
library:

You’ll also definitely want to find better documentation, as whatever
steered you towards ActionWebService is wildly out-of-date.

Of those I’ve found savon to be very easy to use (and the relatively
recent
savon 2 is even better)

Couldn’t agree more, when I absolutely must work with SOAP I use Savon.

I just did a project that had to work with a .net SOAP API. I used the
SAVONhttp://savonrb.com gem.
There is also a
RailsCasthttp://railscasts.com/episodes/290-soap-with-savonfrom Ryan
Bates that shows this in action too. Hope this helps.
