508sending a document from a client to a server
- Jun 20, 2001Hey all,
I'm using SOAP::Lite on both sides of this, client systems will exist in
private networks and talk to a server in a DMZ (across a firewall)... The
clients are going to gather some performance data on the networks they are a
part of (latency, bandwidth usage, etc) and format that up as an XML
document. The I want to use SOAP::Lite to pass that document to the server
which will, in turn, parse said XML and chunk it into a database.
I've got the code written to harvest the data and generate an XML document,
and another bit of code that will read the XML document and put the data
into the appropriate tables on a database, and I've read through all of the
man pages and the 'Introduction to SOAP::Lite' docs I could download (many
of which repeat the data found in the others), but I don't see
document-sized objects (rather than short strings) being passed from the
client to the server.
You'll have to excuse me if I don't sound like a programmer, I'm a sysadmin
who jumps into Perl when our developer is too busy on other projects of
higher priority. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
