SOAP call tweaks required

by Mike_v (Novice)
on Dec 07, 2010 at 12:27 UTC ( #875779=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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

The following script segment
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
use SOAP::Lite +trace => [qw(method fault headers result debug)]; $uri = "http://webservice.proc.req.lbg.com/"; $proxy = "http://10.161.3.159/LBGRequestProcessorWEB/LBGOIMRequestPr +ocessorService"; @params = (SOAP::Data->name("arg0" => \SOAP::Data->value (SOAP::Data->name(actionType => ""), SOAP::Data->name(additionalOperationType =>""), SOAP::Data->name(originatingSystem => ""), SOAP::Data->name(recipientId => ""), SOAP::Data->name(requestId => ""), SOAP::Data->name(requestType => ""), SOAP::Data->name(resourceType => "") ), ), ); $method = SOAP::Data->name('processRequest') ->attr({xmlns => $uri}) ; $soap = SOAP::Lite -> uri($uri) -> on_action( sub { '' } ) -> proxy($proxy) ; $result = $soap->call($method => @params);
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

gives me this output

------------------------------------------------------------------------

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema"
SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
<SOAP-ENV:Body>
<processRequest xmlns="http://webservice.proc.req.lbg.com/">
<arg0>
<actionType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<additionalOperationType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<originatingSystem xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<recipientId xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<requestId xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<requestType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<resourceType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
</arg0>
</processRequest>
</SOAP-ENV:Body></SOAP-ENV:Envelope>



After playing about in SoapUI with this I've worked out that I need the output to be as below, specifically, the extra xmlns:web line and the subsequent web: prefix of the <processRequest> tags all in bold

Any help much appreciated

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><SOAP-ENV:Envelope
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"

xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema"
xmlns:web="http://webservice.proc.req.lbg.com/"
SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
<SOAP-ENV:Body>
<web:processRequest>
<arg0>
<actionType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<additionalOperationType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<originatingSystem xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<recipientId xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<requestId xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<requestType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
<resourceType xsi:type="xsd:string"/>
</arg0>
</web:processRequest>
</SOAP-ENV:Body></SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

    I don't know much about SOAP, but the ->default_ns, ->ns and ->use_prefix methods of SOAP::Lite seem promising, at least if you do not need the explicit web: prefix but can do with any prefix.

      I'm not to up on it either, any idea how I would incorporate that into my code?

        I would call the methods with the appropriate parameter, as documented.

    I've been saying this over and over, so here it goes again.

    SOAP::Lite should only be seen as an archeological module. It doesn't implement any of SOAP current uses. SOAP-Encoding should be considered deprecated (it's even removed from newer SOAP spec). XML::Compile::SOAP implements correct SOAP semantics. You can use SOAP::Simple to reduce the code overhead.

      Maybe you should post links and code examples? The OPs code is only 25 lines :)
