I am currently using actionwebservice to provide SOAP services in my
application. The rails soap server is lame. There are several forks of
each of which is addressing one issue or another and nobody seems to be
official maintainer of it.
The same goes for SOAP clients in ruby. SOAP4R is functional for the
stuff but there are all kinds of conflicts and issues with it. Plus it’s
slow as hell.
OTOH java has first rate SOAP clients and servers.
Has anybody ever tried to integrate apache axis with rails using jruby?
That would be a pretty great combination for the “enterprise” developer.
