Generating a WSDL using Python and SOAPpy
First of all, I will admit I am a novice to web services, although I'm familiar with HTML and basic web stuff. I created a quick-and-dirty web service using Python that calls a stored procedure in a MySQL database, that simply returns a BIGINT value. I want to return this value in the web service, and I want to generate a WSDL that I can give our web developers. I might add that the stored procedure only returns one value.
Here's some example code:
#!/usr/bin/python import SOAPpy import MySQLdb def getNEXTVAL(): cursor = db.cursor() cursor.execute( "CALL my_stored_procedure()" ) # Returns a number result=cursor.fetchall() for record in result: return record db=MySQLdb.connect(host="localhost", user="myuser", passwd="********", db="testing") server = SOAPpy.SOAPServer(("10.1.22.29", 8080)) server.registerFunction(getNEXTVAL) server.serve_forever()
I want to generate a WSDL that I can give to the web folks, and I'm wondering if it's possible to have SOAPpy just generate one for me. Is this possible?
Basically I wrote my WSDL file by hand and then used ZSI stuff to generate stubs for my client and server code. I wouldn't describe the experience as pleasant, but the application did work.
