       SOAP::Transport::HTTP::CGI - Generic SOAP CGI handler

       Use this	class to expose	SOAP endpoints using vanilla CGI.  Here's an
       example SOAP endpoint exposed using this	class:

	   package ServerDemo;
	   use strict;
	   use SOAP::Transport::HTTP::CGI;

	   sub handler {
	       my $safe_classes	= {
		   Calculator => undef,


       (I leave	it up to you to	figure out how to get Perl scripts to run as
       CGI scripts - please see	your Perl docs for details)

       This class encapsulates the details of hooking up to CGI, and then
       calls SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Server to do the SOAP-specific stuff. This
       way the Server class can	be reused with any web server configuration
       (including mod_perl), by	simply composing it with a different front-end
       (for instance, SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache, for instance.

   handler(SafeClassHash, OptionalDispatcher)
       This is the only	method on the class, and you must pass a hash
       reference whose keys contain the	collection of classes that may be
       invoked at this endpoint. If you	specify	class FooBar in	this list, for
       instance, and a client sends a SOAP request to
       http://yourserver/soap?class=FooBar, then the
       SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Server class will	eventually attempt to load, instatiate a FooBar, and call	its handle_request function
       (see SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Server for more detail). If you don't
       include a class in this hash, SOAP/Perl won't run it. I promise.

       By the way, only	the keys in this hash are important, the values	are

       Also, nothing is	stopping you from messing around with the response
       yourself	if you'd like to add some headers or whatever; you can always
       call print() dump more headers to STDOUT.  Just make sure you finish
       what you're doing before	you return to SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Server,
       because at that point the response is marshaled and sent	back.

       See SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Server for details on	the OptionalDispatcher
