in reply to Soap::Lite Authentication

The most important thing here is that you're not checking $@. Using eval and then throwing away $@ means you've lost the most important clue as to what's going on!

It looks like the service is not using basic authentication, but Soap Header authentication.

I think the code is going to look something like this:

use SOAP::Lite; use strict; my $service = SOAP::Lite -> service('http://server/GetData.asmx?WSDL'); my $AuthHeader = SOAP::Header->new( name =>'AuthenticationHeader', attr => { xmlns => "" }, value => {username => 'user', password => 'pass' }, ); my $result = $service->GetIt($AuthHeader);
Without seeing the WSDL, I can't be sure--not that I'm a SOAP expert.

    Hi, If i want to pass both Header and body to an webservice how do i do that.

      Odd question since that is what all the SOAP:: modules are there to do, pass both header and body ... a proper SOAP request, so you don't have to reinvent any wheels. Use SOAP::Simple or its daddy XML::Compile

[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
