redirecting a web service
- Hi all,
i got a web services A (implemented with SOAP::Lite, works fine).
now i have to write another webservice B (on another system) that has
to redirect some of it's input parameters to the web service A. So
actually B uses some funtionality of A.
serviceB->mysub(a,b,c) ==> serviceA->(b)
unfortunately this parameter b (that has to redirect to A) is a quite
complex structure of arrays and hashes, so in client B there is a lot
of effort to build a SOAP::Data structure.
to avoid, that i have to build this structure in webservice A again,
just to send the parameter to service B, I want to use the SOM from
the envelope. so i could skip the de/serialization proccesses and take
the received data untouched to service A.
i thaught i could use it like this:
my $parameterB = $envelope->dataof('parameterB');
so i get the SOAP::Data of parameterB, to send it to service B.
unfortunately, the returned SOAP::Data does not have any type
information (that i coded in the SOAP::Data of client B), so the whole
stuff is useless.
do you have any suggestions on how to solve these problems:
1.) how to get the SOAP::Data (with types) from a SOM object
2.) any other concept to redirect the call to another service without
thanks in advance
