Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

[ #21252 ]

Does anyone here have experience with SOAP::WSDL? One of our clients wants us to use SOAP and they've presented us with a WSDL document. I'm not terribly familiar with WSDL, so I'm not sure what the best Perl tools are.

  • I used Perl to test webservices implemented in VB.NET at my former job, this was without using the WSDL though.

    I later found a WSDL generator from Fotango, I have not used it and I do not know whether it will be of interest to you, but I just wanted to let you know. search for WSDL::Generator
  • my $soap = SOAP::Lite->service('url of WSDL file');
    my $result = $soap->method(@params);

    Beware craziness with datatypes. Beware that SOAP::Lite is a steaming pile of undocumented shit.

  • Turns out that you can't feed SOAP::Lite::service a relative path and have it do anything sensible (as yet). I have a patch in to the SOAP::Lite guys that enables it, but wen the next release is, who knows.

    If you have trouble getting your services to communicate, there's a line in SOAP::Lite::call that you can set a breakpoint on to see the raw returned XML.

    I've had some success with SOAP::Lite::service and Python code using the ZSI library, but stuff like the WASP demo program just doesn't work.
