Expecting data from SOAP::Data

Gorby has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Wise Monks,

I wrote a SOAP client that submits data using the following snippet:

$data1=SOAP::Data->name('var1')->value($value)->type('string'); $response=SOAP::Lite ->uri($uri) ->proxy($proxy) ->function1($data1);

What code do I use to retrieve the value of var1 in the SOAP server? The following code doesn't work:
sub function1 { %parameters=@_; $var1=$parameters{var1}; return($var1); }

Thanks in advance for your help.

    For the general case a quick and easy solution to find what you are getting as the parameters to the SOAP server method is by adding use Data::Dumper; to your module and then change the method to be:

    sub function1 { return Dumper(@_); }
    If you you have added +trace =>'all' to the use SOAP::Lite in the client then you will see exactly what it is that the method is getting.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
