WordPress: Call ASMX web service from PHP?

How about a scenario, where you have a brand new virgin machine, and you have been asked a question on how, a php code would call an asmx from a WordPress website?

So, you have literally nothing: No visual studio, no TextPad, no Notepad++, no IIS installed anywhere over the network, no php editor, no server to deploy php code -- Do you think you can answer the question? No?

Think again!

1. Access to internet -- is enough! gives you an interface to run and test your php code. As well as, and provides online IDE interface.

2. Now, how to test calling an ASP.NET web service? Google... for free online ASP.NET web services, you'd find lots. Following simple services helped us with the testing:
Following code goes into the php script file:

echo "Script Start\n\n";
//1. create object
$client = new SoapClient("");

//2. fill params
$object = new stdClass();
$object->symbol = "MSFT";

//3. Call web method

catch (SoapFault $exception) { echo $exception; }
echo "Script complete\n\n";

Worked fairly well.

  7. Great client service is moving above and over and above of responsibility. Moving above and beyond only helping someone. That modest extra mile. It is going far above what your usual job duties are. Whatever they're looking to receive as service as towards service or their product, you exceed to allow it to happen to get your own client. And it's really more than simply providing the support, it's genuinely believing in your product or your ceremony and helping the customer in order that they see that the value from that too.
