Generator Tools for Coding SOAP/XML Web Services in C and C++
The gSOAP Web services development toolkit offers an XML to C/C++ language binding to ease the development of SOAP/XML Web services in C and C/C++. Most toolkits for C++ Web services adopt a SOAP-centric view and offer APIs that require the use of class libraries for SOAP-specific data structures. This often forces a user to adapt the application logic to these libraries. In contrast, gSOAP provides a transparent SOAP API through the use of proven compiler technologies. These technologies leverage strong typing to map XML schemas to C/C++ definitions. Strong typing provides a greater assurance on content validation of both WSDL schemas and SOAP/XML messages.
