in thread Trouble getting started with SOAP (SOAP::Lite, SOAP::WSDL), translating from PHP to Perl

Actually, one of the things I'd said at the beginning was that the PHP code worked, and the issue I face is translating it into Perl. Further, the point of failure is before authentication can happen.

The point of translating it into Perl was so that I could connect to the wsdl server using my own CGI code. I have 'integrations' into a bunch of different credit card processors' servers (so a merchant can simply connect to my cgi API, over SSL/TLS, with his account info including the rocessor ID, and submit his transactions. This way, the merchant need not worry about integrating into a bunch of different processors for their various accounts (many merchants have several accounts with different processors, and that can make managign these accounts in their CRM and shopping carts a nightmare; and my system greatly simplifies that). But all my networking software is written in perl.

    Well, what you said was "The only working example I have for the SOAP sever I need to use is written in PHP". In my experience these services often provide examples written in various languages so my intention was to clarify. I don't know PHP so can't help you with translation.

    You said too that "SOAP itself looks to be simple enough" but if you have a look at SOAP::Simple it says:
    Let's face it. SOAP is painful. It's a dumb idea, the only reason you should ever consider using SOAP is if someone holds a gun to your head or pay you a lot of money for it.
    Maybe that module should be called SOAP::Simple?

    If you are familiar with XML a better approach may be to use XML::Compile::SOAP and it has lots of examples too. Without being able to see your Perl code and the details of how it fails the only other suggestion I have is to look through the many other nodes here on Perlmonks that mention SOAP and WSDL.
