Manipulating SOAP message format
- Hi folks,
Relatively new to the world of SOAP::Lite, but basically familiar
with the general concepts - I've implemented fairly complex "web
services" using CORBA:Orbit (if you call CORBA a web service) so
I don't beleive I'm *completely* clueless. :-)
I'm dealing with a service provider's SOAP server interface and
I am having some difficulty in getting SOAP::Lite to generate
a set of XML that the server believes is valid.
I've obtained an example SOAP XML request that the service
provider says should work, and indeed if I manually shove
that XML at the server, it works just fine.
To add complexity, the service provider's SOAP interface uses
HTTPS as a transport, requires X509 certificate authentication,
to get you where you need to go, without changing the actual URL.
I've overcome the above issues and can now call the SOAP method,
however I get an error back saying my SOAP XML message is invalid.
Indeed, the SOAP::Lite generated XML message doesn't look at all
like the example they supply (which works if I manually craft
the HTTPS POST and submit the example XML using LWP::UserAgent).
If you've read this far, I thank you.
The service provider's example of a valid SOAP XML message is as
I've tried (and failed) for a couple of days to get SOAP::Lite to
generate a message that looks vaguely like this.
Appreciate any feedback/assistance provided. I can provide code
examples if that helps :)
In an ideal world (long term) WSDL will solve this issue, but until
everyone's implementation WSDL is equal, the pipe dream reamains a
little way off :)
