@ProviderType public class PortletPreferencesServiceSoap extends Object
PortletPreferencesServiceUtilservice utility. The static methods of this class call the same methods of the service utility. However, the signatures are different because it is difficult for SOAP to support certain types.
ServiceBuilder follows certain rules in translating the methods. For example,
if the method in the service utility returns a
that is translated to an array of
com.liferay.portal.kernel.model.PortletPreferencesSoap. If the method in the
service utility returns a
com.liferay.portal.kernel.model.PortletPreferences, that is translated to a
com.liferay.portal.kernel.model.PortletPreferencesSoap. Methods that SOAP
cannot safely wire are skipped.
The benefits of using the SOAP utility is that it is cross platform compatible. SOAP allows different languages like Java, .NET, C++, PHP, and even Perl, to call the generated services. One drawback of SOAP is that it is slow because it needs to serialize all calls into a text format (XML).
You can see a list of services at http://localhost:8080/api/axis. Set the property axis.servlet.hosts.allowed in portal.properties to configure security.
The SOAP utility is only generated for remote services.
