816[soaplite] question on sending a simple message versus waiting for a result
- Sep 12, 2001I am using SOAP::Lite for a project, and it is wonderful. Of course, I
ran into something that I hoped would not be hard to solve. What I want
to do is quite simple to state. I want to (within SOAP::Lite) send an
object to a method, and simply have the call return right away without
waiting for the method to return a result. That is, the method has
desireable side effects, and no real return information.
Currently I have to look at either polling a queue that the method places
an entry into, or forking a process. I want something more like "fire and
forget", or basic messaging. Can this be done easily within SOAP::Lite?
Suppose we had a method named return_immediately rather than result, so
that our calls might look like
Clues/hints welcome. Thanks!
