Developing SOAP services using Play Framework 2.x

by László Kustra

Play is a web application framework for Java and Scala. SOAP, originally defined as Simple Object Access Protocol, is a specification for exchanging structured information (i.e. sending messages) over computer networks. SOAP is widely supported, a notable implementation for Java (and Scala) is the Apache CXF library.

In this tutorial, we’re going to create a Play application which also acts as a SOAP service and serves requests using Apache CXF so that our Hello World service “just works”.
