      I'll try and work this change into our code in the next week and let you know how it goes...

      The current architecture of SOAP::Lite doesn't make this terribly easy. That is because LWP::UserAgent is the base class for SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client.

      But in SOAP::Lite 0.65 Beta 2, I have included a work around. It is not elegant, but it works. In the next release, you can use the following code to change the UserAgent for SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client.
      #!/usr/bin/perl -w
      use SOAP::Lite +trace => qw(debug);
      use SOAP::Transport::HTTP;
      use My::UserAgent;
      use strict;
      my $uri = "urn:Majordojo:TemperatureService";
      my $proxyUrl = "http://localhost/cgi-bin/soaplite.cgi";

      $SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client::USERAGENT_CLASS = "My::UserAgent2";

      my $soap = SOAP::Lite
      $soap->c2f(SOAP::Data->name('temperature' => 100));
      There is one caveat: the class you specify as the USERAGENT_CLASS MUST INHERIT FROM LWP::UserAgent. If it does not, because SOAP::Lite depends upon LWP::UserAgent method calls, SOAP::Lite will issue a die command.

      This needs to be tested. So who is signing up for it?


      PS. I have just checked these changed into CVS.

      makes hard things easy.

      Is it possible to override the LWP::UserAgent used by
      SOAP::Transport::HTTP to use something like LWP::UserAgent::ProxyAny --
      it has the feature of checking a Win32 client's Internet Explorer
      settings for proxy settings in addition to checking the environment
      variable - useless for my GTK or OS X clients, but would be very handy
      for the majority of Win32 clients.  I couldn't find anything in the docs
      or the mailing list about this - unless I just missed it.

      Thanks in advance for any ideas.
