DESCRIPTION

       This Apache Perl module provides the ability to add support for SOAP (Simple Object Access
       Protocol) protocol with easy configuration (either in .conf or in .htaccess file). This
       functionality should give you lightweight option for hosting SOAP services and greatly
       simplify configuration aspects. This module inherites functionality from
       SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache component of SOAP::Lite module.

CONFIGURATION

       The module can be placed in <Location>, <Directory>, <Files>, <FilesMatch> directives in
       main server configuration areas or directly in .htaccess file.

       All parameters should be quoted and can be separated with commas or spaces for lists ("a,
       b, c") and with 'wide arrows' and commas for hash parameters ("key1 => value1, key2 =>
       value2").

       All options that you can find in SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache component are available for
       configuration. Here is the description of most important ones.

       dispatch_to (LIST)
           Specifies path to directory that contains Perl modules you'd like to give access to,
           or just list of modules (for preloaded modules).

             PerlSetVar dispatch_to "/Your/Path/To/Deployed/Modules, Module::Name, Module::method"

       options (HASH)
           Specifies list of options for your module, for example threshold for compression.
           Future versions will support more options. See SOAP::Transport::HTTP documentation for
           other options.

             PerlSetVar options "compress_threshold => 10000"

METHODS/SUBROUTINES
