Hi All,

Thanks for reading.

My organisation is considering using PHP as a replacement for our classic ASP pages. It's currently my job to convince them that PHP is better than ASP!

I'm trying to use the PEAR SOAP_client object to connect to a webservice with the below code:


require_once ("SOAP/Client.php");

define ("SOURCE_URL","");

$motorquote = new SOAP_client (SOURCE_URL, False);

$QRequest["EffectiveDate"] = "2010-03-25";
$QRequest["AgentCode"] = "38004W";
$QRequest["PolicyType"] = "S";
$QRequest["CoverType"] = "01";
$QRequest["TransactionType"] = 1;

$params = array("QRequest" => $QRequest);

$response = $motorquote->call("", $params);
   echo "Error " . $response->getCode() . " [" . $response->getMessage() . "]";

the xml that this sends through to our webservice is this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<EffectiveDate xsi:type="xsd:string">2010-03-25</EffectiveDate>
<AgentCode xsi:type="xsd:string">38004W</AgentCode>
<PolicyType xsi:type="xsd:string">S</PolicyType>
<CoverType xsi:type="xsd:string">01</CoverType>
<TransactionType xsi:type="xsd:int">1</TransactionType></QRequest></item>

I have not anywhere specified to use <item> as my root element and the webservice needs <QRequest> to be the root element.

How can I stop the SOAP_client object adding this unwanted element?

Sounds like you're getting through to the server - just need to make sure the request is well-formed. The wsdl contains a complete description of the schema. You need to build an associative array with the correct keys and the correct datatypes. It's case sensitive. Read the wsdl and make sure you have all the required elements in the request array. It's dull reading, but if you can follow along what I did in the FedEx module that should help. In particular, see the code I use to print out the request (function print_request_response), and use that to compare what you're sending with whatever example you have or with the wsdl.
