  1. Download and extract the SSC PHP WSDL classes.
  2. Download the WsExample.php.txt file and save it as WsExample.php in the same directory (folder) where the SSC PHP class files were extracted to.
  3. Ensure that your PHP include_path contains the location where the above files were put.
  4. Run the example:
          $ php WsExample.php
