Practical examples of consuming SOAP API in Salesforce

I'm trying to create a connection between our Org and a third party system through the SOAP API. Are there any practical examples of this? (I've done the trailheads but they haven't given many practical examples).

I need a button to call the third-party web services through SOAP API, search and retrieve results then populate fields on the salesforce record the button is clicked from.

Can anyone show working practical code which I can amend for us?

Any help is much appreciated!
Many thanks,
Natasha :)

I suggest that you check this module on Trailhead. It provides you with really hands-on examples about the SOAP API usage.


If you are using the Java connector, you can find an example code here:
