I am looking for someone with SOAP webservice experience to help me build a simple SOAP webservice and most importantly to explain me how it is done. Suggested tools are Eclipse / Tomcat but I can consider other tools if you have a good reason.
I am looking for help in the following areas:
- development environment setup (i've windows xp + debian in vmware)
- web server setup (linux gentoo with apache 1.3 - tomcat must use connector to use port 80)
- building an example web service with WSDL
The example web service should have a function getPerson() with two parameters: a date and an id_group. It should return an associative array with elements (id_person, organization, email) fields that comes from a simple mysql query that I can provide.
It should be easy to add other fields as needed. I need to be teached HOW it is done step by step. The bid winner should be patient and able to help me online with an Instant Messanger (skype, msn, icq).
