(Node.js) Making SOAP Requests using the REST API

There's no reason a SOAP request cannot be sent using the REST API. It's only a matter of adding a SOAP specific header, and providing the SOAP XML request body. The response body is the SOAP response XML.

This example sends a request to ws.cdyne.com to get city weather by zip code.

Install Chilkat for Node.js and Electron using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js

on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, and ARM

var os = require('os');
if (os.platform() == 'win32') {  
    if (os.arch() == 'ia32') {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node11-win-ia32');
    } else {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node11-win64'); 
    }
} else if (os.platform() == 'linux') {
    if (os.arch() == 'arm') {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node11-arm');
    } else if (os.arch() == 'x86') {

    // Demonstrates how to do a SOAP request using the REST API.

    // This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.

    var rest = new chilkat.Rest();

    // This is the request to be sent:
