I was tired of writing a large complex data with plain SOAP::Data and was so glad to have found SOAP::Data::ComplexType
Stop right there. You don't have to construct SOAP::Data hierarchies by hand!. Use SOAP::WSDL (instead of SOAP::Lite), which
  • handles the namespaces for you
  • constructs outgoing complexType values (including arrays) automatically from normal perl data-structures.
  • is a subclass of SOAP::Lite.

I simply cannot believe how many folks are doing this the hard way. It's almost like Perl-based users of SOAP hate themselves ;)

A service method Foo expecting an array of xsd:string elements for the argument called 'Words' can be called as follows:

  $soap->Foo(Words => [qw/this is a test!/]);

No need to hand-construct anything under SOAP::Data at all.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
