This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WordPress Web Service


WordPress Web Service (WPWS) is used to access WordPress resources via WSDL and SOAP.
It allows you to connect WSDL enabled software like Adobe Flex / Flash Builder,
Microsoft Visual Studio, PHP, J2EE, etc. to WordPress resources like posts
and pages.

WPWS gives you also the opportunity to program alternative (graphical) interfaces
for your WordPress installation.

Furthermore alternative interpretations of WordPress resources are possible.
For example you can interpret a post/page as a gallery; a datatype consisting of
all included images with the corresponding attributes.

After installation simply open to test your plugin.
That is to add “/wpws” to the index.php part in your WordPress’ url.

Developers willing to help development on WPWS are greatly welcomed.
