Overview

Development toolkit for Web services and XML data bindings for C & C++

Read More

The gSOAP toolkit is an extensive suite of portable C and C++ software to develop XML Web services with powerful type-safe XML data bindings. Easy-to-use XML auto-serialization allows you to directly integrate XML data in C and C++ (C++11 compatible) applications. Includes WSDL/XSD schema binding and auto-coding tools, stub/skeleton compiler, Web servers (with SSL), integrated XML processing with schema validation, fast MIME/MTOM streaming, SOAP and REST, WS-* protocols (WS-Security, WS-Policy, etc), XML-RPC and JSON serialization. Free software under GPLv2 (many have asked about non-GPL/commercial licensing: yes there are basic low-cost licensing options starting at under 1K).

Features

  • XML data binding tools for C and C++ (and C++11)
  • XSD schema <=> C/C++ type binding means XML and C/C++ data is always type safe
  • XML streaming auto-serialization of C/C++ data (with optional use of DOM)
  • XML-RPC from/to JSON from/to C/C++ conversion (also in streaming mode)
  • No need to alter C/C++ types for serialization (declare type as 'volatile')
  • WSDL 1.1, WSDL 2.0, SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2 compliant
  • REST HTTP(S) 1.0/1.1 operations (GET,PUT,POST etc) for XML, JSON, etc
  • Send and recieve XML over sockets, file FD, and C++ streams
  • WS-I Basic Profile 1.0a, 1.1, and 1.2 compliant
  • W3C schema patterns for data binding full test pattern coverage
  • RSS 0.91, 0.92, 2.0 XML support
  • MIME and MTOM attachment support (also in streaming mode)
  • WS-Security XML authentication, signatures, encryption (also in streaming mode)
  • WS-Policy 1.2, 1.5 and WS-SecurityPolicy 1.2 compliant
  • WS-Addressing 2003/03, 2004/03, 2005/03 compliant
  • WS-ReliableMessaging 1.0 and 1.1 compliant
  • WS-Discovery support
  • UDDI v2 API
  • NTLM authentication
  • HTTP basic and digest authentication
  • SSL/TLS communications with SSL session caching (OpenSSL or GNUTLS)
  • Proxy and proxy authentication support
  • Compression (HTTP(S) compression and zlib)
  • IPv4 and IPv6 supported, TCP and UDP
  • SOAP-over-UDP
  • Apache 1.x and 2.0 modules
  • IIS (ISAPI) and WinInet modules
  • CGI and FastCGI support
  • Stand-alone Web server included (multithreaded, SSL, compression)
  • Integrated memory management with deallocation and leak detection
  • Plug-ins for additional capabilities
  • Internationalization/localization support (UTF8, UCS4, MB encodings, etc)
  • WSDL/XSD conversion to C or C++ and vice versa
  • Portable to small devices (for example WinCE, Palm, Symbian, VxWorks, Android, iPhone)
  • Auto-test server code generation for (dummy) server testing
  • Automatic XML document and message generation from WSDL and XSD
  • C/C++ (cyclic) object graph auto-serialization (with SOAP id-href encoding)
  • STL container auto-serialization and custom C++ container auto-serialization
  • Over 40 example client and server applications included
  • Licenses: GPLv2, gSOAP public license (for engine and plugins), commercial non-GPL license available upon request (software is 100% in-house developed, no third-party GPL contributions included)
