SOAP Server and XML

by rppowell (Novice)
on Nov 26, 2007 at 23:23 UTC ( #653121=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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

I have posted this earlier, see SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon and XML, but I still need help getting SOAP::Lite to return the correct XML information.
This is for a SOAP Server, not the SOAP Client.
Here is the code for the Fake SOAP Server:
use strict; use SOAP::Lite + "trace"; use SOAP::Transport::HTTP; use Data::Dumper; my $serverinfo = { version => "", validTypes => [ filetype => "txt", filetype => "html", ], statistics => { documentsProcessed => 0, }, }; sub FileQueue::getServerInfo { return SOAP::Data->name( info => $serverinfo ); } my $daemon = SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon -> new (LocalPort => 88) -> dispatch_to('FileQueue') ; print "Contact to SOAP server at ", $daemon->url, "\n"; $daemon->handle;
This is the XML that is generated:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV=" +elope/" xmlns:namesp2="" xmlns:xsi="htt +p://" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schema" xmlns:xsd=" +hema" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle=" +g/"> <SOAP-ENV:Body> <namesp1:getServerInfoResponse xmlns:namesp1="http://www.perlmonks"> <info xsi:type="namesp2:SOAPStruct"> <statistics xsi:type="namesp2:SOAPStruct"> <documentsProcessed xsi:type="xsd:int">0</documentsProcessed +> </statistics> <version xsi:type="xsd:string"></version> <validTypes xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:Array" SOAP-ENC:arrayType="xsd: +string[4]"> <item xsi:type="xsd:string">filetype</item> <item xsi:type="xsd:string">txt</item> <item xsi:type="xsd:string">filetype</item> <item xsi:type="xsd:string">html</item> </validTypes> </info> </namesp1:getServerInfoResponse> </SOAP-ENV:Body> </SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
I am trying to generate the following XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV=" +elope/" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="" xm +lns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="http:/ +/" xmlns:pmq=" +ueue"> <SOAP-ENV:Body> <pmq:getServerInfoResponse> <info> <version></version> <validTypes> <filetype>txt</filetype> <filetype>txt</filetype> </validTypes> <statistics> <documentsProcessed>0</documentsProcessed> </statistics> </info> </pmq:getServerInfoResponse> </SOAP-ENV:Body> </SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
How do I get it to generate the XML without the xsi:type attributes?

How do I modify the XML headers? -rppowell

    Just reading through the SOAP::Lite gives a few pointers...

    I think you can have the "pmq" namespace registered in the SOAP Envelope by doing something like (updated):

    # add this to your service instantiation $daemon->envelope( register_ns => '', 'pmq'); # force the 'pmq' prefix to be used sub FileQueue::getServerInfo { return SOAP::Data->name(info => $serverinfo)->prefix('pmq'); }

    I'm not sure if that's the exact syntax but please have a play around with it (update: if that sets the 'pmq' prefix for 'info' rather than 'getServerInfoResponse', then you probably need to do something at the service level, rather than at the method level).

    I don't know how to suppress sending xsi:type attributes for elements inside the SOAP Body.
    SOAP::Lite probably allows you to do it... probably with a custom serialiser.

      I think the OP is looking for help with method result serialisation in his SOAP::Lite server code.

    Have you tried this?

    SOAP::Data->name( info => $serverinfo )->type('');
      I've figured out how to output raw XML into the SOAP envelope: Using the same client as before: It produces the following SOAP response:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:xsi=" +e" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="" xmlns:S +OAP-ENV="" xmlns:xsd="http:/ +/" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xm"> <SOAP-ENV:Body> <namesp1:getServerInfoResponse xmlns:namesp1="http://www.perlmonks"> <info> <statistics> <documentsProcessed>0</documentsProcessed> </statistics> <validTypes> <filetype>html</filetype> <filetype>txt</filetype> </validTypes> <version></version> </info> </namesp1:getServerInfoResponse> </SOAP-ENV:Body> </SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
      This is closer to the real SOAP server response: I am still trying to figure out how to get rid of the xmlns:namesp1="" and the envelope headers.
        Ugh, the message was posted when I wasn't logged in.
      That'd probably work for the 'info' node, but rppowell wants to (for reasons unknown) strip type attributes from all nodes descending from the Soap::Body.

      To do that, it'd need to be done either at the $daemon level, or with a custom(ised?) serialiser.
