Webservice with Ruby

Right now we are using java based webservices and want to move them to ruby on rails webservice. I did not find any ActionWebservice package under gems folder.

I appreciate if anyone can help me to find examples on SOAP based webservice with ruby.

Ruby version: 1.8.7

Thanks   Krishna

texperts works only with action pack <= 1.13.x and the current action pack is 2.1.x and it throws an exception as

C:\ruby>gem install actionwebservice ERROR: Error installing actionwebservice:         actionwebservice requires actionpack (= 1.13.6, runtime)

I read the 'Agile web development with ruby' and still not succeed creating webservice.

I appreciate if you can share step by step webservice example either with soap4r, actionwebservice, aws, any...

I wrote the blog post blasterpal linked to, the key thing is that we
don't use the gem. I've downloaded the source from the rails svn host
and stuck next to the other components of the rails framework (ie
everything is frozen into the app). This continues to work for me with
2.1.2

Kent Sibilev has been maintaining a gem you can just install: DATANOISE.COM
