Ah, ok. The entire code is rarely the fix around here, usually its a demonstration.

And honestly I dislike SOAP strongly, and I barely understand WSDL :)

There was a recent question, Re^4: checkVat - SOAP::Lite, and I had no clue what was supposed to happen, but it was simpler to use SOAP::Simple, and it turns out, SOAP::Simple is better with WSDL. The whole program boiled down to

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple qw' mirror '; use SOAP::Simple; use Data::Dumper; my $wsdlUrl = 'http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/checkVatServi +ce.wsdl'; my $wsdlFile = 'checkVatService.wsdl'; mirror( $wsdlUrl, $wsdlFile ); my $soap = SOAP::Simple->new( $wsdlFile ); my ($answer, $trace) = $soap->checkVat( countryCode => "IE", vatNumber => "1234567890", ); print Dumper( $answer ),"\n"; $trace->printRequest; $trace->printResponse; __END__
The output is
$VAR1 = { 'parameters' => { 'requestDate' => '2011-05-13+02:00', 'vatNumber' => '1234567890', 'valid' => 0, 'countryCode' => 'IE' } }; Request: POST http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/services/checkVatServ +ice HTTP/1.1 User-Agent: libwww-perl/6.02 Content-Length: 347 Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8" SOAPAction: "" X-LWP-Version: 6.02 X-XML-Compile-Cache-Version: 0.991 X-XML-Compile-SOAP-Version: 2.23 X-XML-Compile-Version: 1.21 X-XML-LibXML-Version: 1.70 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/e +nvelope/"><SOAP-ENV:Body><tns1:checkVat xmlns:tns1="urn:ec.europa.eu: +taxud:vies:services:checkVat:types"><tns1:countryCode>IE</tns1:countr +yCode><tns1:vatNumber>1234567890</tns1:vatNumber></tns1:checkVat></SO +AP-ENV:Body></SOAP-ENV:Envelope> Response: HTTP/1.1 200 OK Connection: Keep-Alive Date: Fri, 13 May 2011 08:01:45 GMT Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 Client-Date: Fri, 13 May 2011 08:01:53 GMT Client-Peer: 147.67.119.103:80 Client-Response-Num: 1 Client-Transfer-Encoding: chunked <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?><soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapen +v="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><soapenv:Body><urn:chec +kVatResponse xmlns:urn="urn:ec.europa.eu:taxud:vies:services:checkVat +:types"><urn:countryCode>IE</urn:countryCode><urn:vatNumber>123456789 +0</urn:vatNumber><urn:requestDate>2011-05-13+02:00</urn:requestDate>< +urn:valid>false</urn:valid></urn:checkVatResponse></soapenv:Body></so +apenv:Envelope>
Looks simple indeed :)
