SOAP timeout not workingby Velaki (Chaplain)
|on Aug 18, 2010 at 17:52 UTC||Need Help??|
Velaki has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a situation where my SOAP code works fine, up until the point I need to connect to a service that is unavailable. When I do, the process simply hangs.
The on_fault executes on call() after a few minutes, but never appears to return; instead, the process simply dies. No traps, eval doesn't protect it, no messages; just dies.
And the timeout doesn't seem to work. Even when set to 2 seconds, it still hangs for minutes.
"Perl. There is no substitute."
