in reply to SOAP::Lite

Function proxy and uri are very poorly named.
proxy and uri are methods
It can easily make people think that it is the server
Not likely, but the documentation definitively clears up what the method does.
, should be called endpoint as it is perceived in the entire SOAP world.
Thats a good suggestion to make to the developers.
uri is hardly needed, but all examples in SOAP::Lite doc have that
The docs say otherwise: Nothing is specified by default and your call will definitely fail if you don't specify the required uri.
you really cannot easily guess what should be passed in..
Why would you guess when you can read the documentation which explains it?

We've all been frustrated, but this kind of module review is not productive. You should talk to the developers.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    "proxy and uri are methods"

    As well as functions, as SOAP::Lite can also be used non-OO style. So don't be too clever here.

    "The docs say otherwise: Nothing is specified by default and your call will definitely fail if you don't specify the required uri."

    Then the doc lied, since I can obviously use without specify uri, or the doc intentionally lie, but the author even didn't know how his module works. Before you open your mouth, try what I said first. get some hands-on experience, honey!

    "Why would you guess when you can read the documentation which explains it?"

    That's not the point, the point is that the fucntion names should be intuitive. Regardless.
