I am trying to figure out how to use SOAP::Lite for calling webservices, specifically using the wsdl variation in SOAP::Lite. The only example ( the stock quote ) for wsdl simply does not work for me -- I get back a blank, and the trace shows that there is a null exception error at the far end. However, when I use a GUI tool to make the call it works fine. When I compare the XML being sent by the two they are very, very different -- the GUI one is pretty clean and easy to read and the SOAP::Lite is a bit more cluttered ( I understand the far side doesn't care, but I just wanted to indicate that they are different. )
Is there a better library out there to use for this purpose than SOAP::Lite? I see SOAP::WSDL but it doesn't seem to be maintained at this point.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
