Can somebody explain what the thinking is behind soaplib.php.
Superficially I appreciate that it is to flatten the differences between nusoap and php5 soap, but it seems to dispose of all sorts of functionality in both. I also don't quite see why a wrapper was written around the php5 functions (by 'Mad' Alex as far as I can tell). For example, what if you don't want to use WSDL? What if you need to give proxy details? What if you want to write server code?
There's some weird coding too, like this...
return new soap_client($wsdl, 'wsdl')
...that second parameter is defined in the library as $wsdl=false, certainly not a string
As far as I can see this isn't used that much. Can I extend it to provide any extra functionality I need (provided I don't break anything of course) ?
More confused than usual
