SOAP 1.2 Request and Response of GetTemp

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use to send a SOAP 1.2 request for the GetTemp Web service provided by

After finishing SOAP 1.1 test, I continued to use to send a SOAP 1.2 request for the GetTemp Web service.

According to the WSDL document given at, I prepared my first request sample, soap_1_2_GetTemp.req:

POST /Service/TemperatureService.php HTTP/1.1
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 240

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<env:Envelope xmlns:env=""

I carefully counted the number of bytes of the request content including the last \r\n and entered 416 in the Content-Length header line.

Here is the test result of my sample SOAP 1.2 request:

herong> perl 80 \
   soap_1_2_GetTemp.req soap_1_2.res

herong> more soap_1_2.res
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
X-Powered-By: PHP/7.0.2
Content-Length: 558
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<env:Envelope xmlns:env=""
 <env:Body xmlns:rpc="">
   <return xsi:type="xsd:float">57.5</return>

Very nice again. My first SOAP 1.2 test with worked correctly.

The SOAP response message received as a single line without any line breaks. I reformatted it before including it here.
