Re: Is it possible to call without a method?
- After searching and browsing through a lot of posts in the soaplite
group and reading Duncan's reply to my original problem, I am starting
to wonder if I should even be using SOAP::Lite!
The following messages make it clear that in some cases it just makes
more sense to use LWP to post a manually constructed SOAP message:
4055 "Re: How to resubmit raw SOAP XML"
4198 "Re: Using SOAP to transfer XML document"
4217 "Re: Is it possible to call without a method?"
In my case, so far, here is what I am doing:
 The application server (legacy software) constructs an XML
 The XML request is passed to the SOAP gateway.
 SOAP::Lite places the reqest inside a SOAP Body and Envelope and
then sends it to the appropriate vendor's SOAP server.
 The results are passed back from the SOAP gateway to the
application server for parsing and processing.
In this scenario, SOAP::Lite does not seem to do much for me.
So here is the big question: Is there any reason that it would be a
bad idea to drop using SOAP::Lite and use a simple LWP POST in its
place? Is there something I am missing here? Is SOAP::Lite doing more
for me than I realize?
