Creating a php webservice for C#

12 June 2007 2 Comments

Probably a lot of you are wonder if is possible to access a php webservice from C#, so I made a simple test to show you is possible :).
In this test I used nusoap and php4. In the future I will do the test with PHP5 and it’s SOAP library.



$param = array(‘x’ => ‘xsd:string’,’y’ => ‘xsd:string’);
$return = array(‘return’=>’xsd:string’);

$server = new soap_server();
$server->configureWSDL(‘WS Test’,$ns);

function TestFunction($x,$y){


return new soapval(‘return’,’xsd:string’,$ret);


To access this webservice just go to: http://your.server.address/ws.php?wsdl

    Now try it by using an integer as input for your webservice function.

    I agree with Colin.Without having the kgenlodwe/experience it only makes sense to use an open source application.I have built custom CMS’s, along with use applications like Joomla. I know Joomla can be complete overkill on a small scale site. I use WordPress as a CMS often to build small scale sites. The code is easy to modify if you need any customization, its much simpler than Joomla/Drupal, its thouroughly tested with a huge user community.Creating a custom CMS has its place, but it so does using an off the shelf solution to build quickly and bug free.
