I’m having some problems with SOAP too, I can’t access the virtual earth
web
service (microsoft) when i try to call a remote function it returns “400
bad
request” and when i try to use the HTTPS url i even can’t connect to
soap
server.

Anyone tried to use the Virtual Earth in ruby ?

Thanks,
Ernesto

This much I can tell you; Microsoft seems to be fully “in-bed” with SOAP
and driving much of the SOAP standard. By this I mean they are taking
fully advantage of “everything” that SOAP provides today.

SOAP for Ruby does not even promise to support the full gambit of the
“modern” SOAP standard. And SOAP for Ruby doesn’t seem to be in the
hearts-and-minds of Ruby developers.

Now you may be thinking, “I’m promoting SOAP with these statements.”
But, oh contraries! If SOAP died tomorrow I’d be a really happy camper.

REST is the future! Anyone with vision is doing REST! REST rules! Go
Ruby! Go Rails! Give SOAP a REST and let’s build a brighter future!

Unfortunately, we have to live with the backward thinkers like Microsoft
and Oracle. So if Ruby need great SOAP support then my recommendation is
come together, join in, and contribute to a Ruby SOAP project. I
wouldn’t count of the core Ruby on Rails developers to do it for your
though.
