Open Terminal and type telnet and your server address and port:

telnet 80

Then quickly paste the following text with your service specifics in place of these generic names:


 POST /Apps/WebObjects/appName.woa/ws/ServiceName HTTP/1.0


 Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8

 Content-Length: 547

 SOAPAction: "OperationName"

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

 <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">


     <ns0:OperationName xmlns:ns0="http://DefaultNamespace" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="">


       <inParameter1 xsi:type="xsd:string">49464</inParameter1>


       <inParameter2 xsi:type="xsd:int">10</inParameter2>




Of course this is just an example but you can get the idea that with the soap wrapper and proper naming you can user terminal for a soap request. The result will appear in the terminal window as well (showing you if your service works and what it returns).
