When a class extending SoapClient is defined in a namespace, the classmap ignores the current namespace and maps classes directly to the global namespace.  In order for it to function correctly, the classmap must include the "fully qualified" namespace\classname as the target.

Currently, I'm using a wrapper class for SoapClient that prepends __NAMESPACE__ onto the classmap entries to get around this issue.

Test script:
// This is NOT a fully complete test script, since it requires testing against an actual SOAP server to function.  Plus I couldn't fit that in 20 lines.
//Does not work:
namespace Other;
class OtherService extends \SoapClient {
    private static $classmap = array(
            'session' => 'session',
            'foo'     => 'foo'
    // etc etc

namespace Other;
class OtherService extends \SoapClient {
    private static $classmap = array(
            'session' => 'Other\session',
            'foo'     => 'Other\foo'
    // etc etc

Expected result:
The classmap would obey the current namespace.

Actual result:
PHP Fatal error:  Class 'session' not found in test.php on line XX

You need to define the namespace in the classmap.. eg.

private static $classmap = array(
    'foo' => 'Other\foo',
    'bar' => 'Other\bar'

This issue is still present in php 5.5 and is confirmed. The workaround is to always specify a full namespace starting from the root \. Unfortunately this can get pretty verbose.

Class names inside strings are *always* fully qualified. As of PHP 5.5 the ::class syntax can be used to retrieve the canonical class name, that is in your case using session::class and foo::class gives 'Other\session' and 'Other\foo'.
