Use SOAP to Access EJB Components with PHP : Page 4

PHP code on the front end and EJBs on the back end—how do you make them talk to each other? Apply a little SOAP. Exposing the EJBs as Web services enables PHP to work with them, and SOAP is the key.




Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Install Apache SOAP
At this point, you need to download and install Apache SOAP and then integrate it into your application. Go back to your deployment tool window (Did you close it already? Too fast! Open it once again!) and take the following steps:
  1. Single click on AlohaApp.

  2. Click on ADD WEB WAR (choose soap.war in the webapps/ directory where your Apache SOAP is installed, like in the screenshot above).

  3. Click NEXT, again NEXT, then FINISH

    If you've done everything correctly, you will see the screen below.

Now, to be 100 percent sure that your Apache SOAP is installed and working properly, type this URL in your browser window: http://localhost:8000/admin/. If everything is okay, you will see the Apache SOAP Admin interface.

Have SOAP Expose Your EJB Component
Now, you need to tell Apache SOAP that you want to expose the EJB component to it. To accomplish this, use the next deployment descriptor, soap_dd.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <isd:service xmlns:isd="http://xml.apache.org/xml-soap/deployment" id="urn:demo"> <isd:provider type="org.apache.soap.providers.StatelessEJBProvider"
scope="Application" methods="create"> <isd:java class="greentest.HelloWorld"/> <isd:option key="JNDIName" value="Aloha" /> <isd:option key="FullHomeInterfaceName" value="greentest.HelloWorldHome" /> <isd:option key="ContextProviderURL" value="iiop://localhost:1050" /> <isd:option key="FullContextFactoryName"
value="com.sun.jndi.cosnaming.CNCtxFactory" /> </isd:provider> <isd:faultListener>org.apache.soap.server.DOMFaultListener</isd:faultListener> </isd:service>

To deploy the EJB component as a Web service to Apache SOAP, use the following command:

java org.apache.soap.server.ServiceManagerClient
http://localhost:8000/servlet/rpcrouter deploy soap_dd.xml

It's that easy!
