Getting soap client/server to work

jfroebe has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm having trouble getting the example code (Quick Start with SOAP) to work with my Apache server. What's odd is that there aren't any errors in the apache error log or STDERR.

I run hibye.pl to connect to my webserver which will run the cgi script hibye.cgi. I don't receive any output with respect to the web app. This has got to be something simple. Yes, the cgi-bin is set up correctly for cgi execution. Normal cgi apps work fine.

I've also added the /var/www/cgi-bin/soap directory to the PERL5LIB environment variable in the /etc/init.d/httpd. Ideas?

output:

./hibye.pl 0.60

hibye.cgi

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # -- SOAP::Lite -- guide.soaplite.com -- Copyright (C) 2001 Paul Kulch +enko -- use SOAP::Transport::HTTP; SOAP::Transport::HTTP::CGI -> dispatch_to('Demo') -> handle; package Demo; sub hi { return "hello, world"; } sub bye { return "goodbye, cruel world"; } sub languages { return ("Perl", "C", "sh"); }

hibye.pl

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # -- SOAP::Lite -- guide.soaplite.com -- Copyright (C) 2001 Paul Kulch +enko -- use SOAP::Lite; print $SOAP::Lite::VERSION . "\n"; print SOAP::Lite ->uri('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/Demo') ->proxy('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/hibye.cgi') ->hi() ->result; print SOAP::Lite ->uri('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/Demo') ->proxy('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/hibye.cgi') ->bye() ->result;

    you will get better diagnostics if you do:

    use SOAP::Lite +trace => 'all';

    /J\

      Thanks!

      Looks like I'm getting closer :) A 500 error from apache. hmmm. This should be reported in the /var/log/httpd/error_log but isn't.

        Figured it out! The URI was wrong! :)

        Working:
        print SOAP::Lite ->uri('http://localhost/Demo') ->proxy('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/hibye.cgi') ->hi() ->result;

        Doesn't work:

        print SOAP::Lite ->uri('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/Demo') ->proxy('http://localhost/cgi-bin/soap/hibye.cgi') ->hi() ->result;
