Soap support in Rails 2.0

Hi,

Was SOAP support discontinued in Rails 2.0?

I did read the release notes which mention that REST is the preferred
web services architecture, but nowhere is mentioned that SOAP is
completely out. I created a new Rails 2.0 app, I attempted to generate a
web_service controller + methods and got the following error:
“Couldn’t find ‘web_service’ generator” - and yes, the web_service
generator doesn’t exist in the rails generators directory.

Thanks,
Tiberiu

actionwebservice was removed from core. It’s not hard to resurrect it
though. I put a few notes on that up at

And likewise, I put up a few notes about a new Ruby binding to an
Apache Axis2-based Web Services stack. It supports SOAP 1.2 and many
WS-* specifications. It can be implemented in a Rails controller.
