The VIES client allows
querying of the EU VAT
database system to check the validity of VAT numbers. This is
a fairly essential function to businesses within the EU, and avoids
having to use the standard browser-based service, by relying
on SOAP RPC, which allows access from within any application
The application can be
used standalone, but is is mainly intended as an example
of how to include SOAP services within PHP-GTK2 applications.
To this end, the application page describes in full detail how it
is built, from adding the SOAP extension to laying out the UI.
