Package Generator generates a PHP SDK from any WSDL so you can easily consume any SOAP Web Service without wondering how SOAP is used under the hood.

Package Generator provides many options to generate your package even if a few are required. This project has been tested with many WSDL and is currently used on the platform Providr.IO.

Package Generator generates files that are detailed in the MANIFEST. You are encouraged to read it to understand how and why the files are generated in addition to the way the generated classes are supposed to be used.


In a project:

composer require wsdltophp/packagegenerator --dev

With command line:

$ wget
$ chmod +x wsdltophp-php7.phar
$ mv wsdltophp-php7.phar /usr/local/bin/wsdltophp

With Docker:

$ docker run --rm -it mikaelcom/wsdltophp:tagname


There is two ways to generate your package (apart from being in a project and generating it through the command line):

  • standalone (default behaviour): this means the package is generated as an independent project with its own composer.json file. At the end of the generation, the root directory where the package has been generated will contain the composer.json, the composer.lock file and the vendor directory.
  • not standalone: this means the package is generated as part of an existing project using its own composer.json file.

The standalone option is fully detailed in the Standalone section.

All the options are fully detailed in the Options page.

In a project:

use WsdlToPhp\PackageGenerator\ConfigurationReader\GeneratorOptions;
use WsdlToPhp\PackageGenerator\Generator\Generator;

// Options definition: the configuration file parameter is optional
$options = GeneratorOptions::instance(/* '/path/file.yml' */);
// Generator instantiation
$generator = new Generator($options);
// Package generation

With command line:

The command line is:

$ wsdltophp generate:package \
    --urlorpath="" \
    --destination="./MySdk" \
    --composer-name="myproject/mysdk" \

In order to see all the used options, just remove the --force argument.

With Docker:

Such as with the command line above, simply use the docker run command line before:

$ docker run --rm -it --volume $PWD:/var/www mikaelcom/wsdltophp:tagname generate:package \
    --urlorpath="" \
    --destination="/var/www/MySdk" \
    --composer-name="myproject/mysdk" \

In order to see all the used options, just remove the --force argument.

NOT MAINTAINED ANYMORE: even if version 5 is not published nor is expected soon, maintaining 2 versions, especially for an old PHP version, is time consuming, sorry for the people who would be still using it which would encounter issues fixed in the latest version.

Testing using Docker

Thanks to the Docker image of phpfarm, tests can be run locally under any PHP version using the cli:

  • php-7.4

First of all, you need to create your container which you can do using docker-compose by running the below command line from the root directory of the project:

$ docker-compose up -d --build

You then have a container named package_generator in which you can run composer commands and php cli commands such as:

# install deps in container (using update ensure it does use the composer.lock file if there is any)
$ docker exec -it package_generator php-7.4 /usr/bin/composer update
# run tests in container
$ docker exec -it package_generator php-7.4 -dmemory_limit=-1 vendor/bin/phpunit
