NAME

SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Proxy - Forward SOAP requests from an HTTP server to an ActiveWorks broker

SYNOPSIS

    require SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Proxy;

    my $s = SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Proxy->new();

    $s->handle_request($http_method, $request_class,
                           $request_header_reader, 
                           $request_content_reader,
                           $response_header_writer,
                           $response_content_writer,
                           $optional_dispatcher);

DESCRIPTION

SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Proxy provides a handler for use by SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Apache for forwarding requests to an ActiveWorks broker received via Apache or other HTTP server. The relationship between packages is identical to that of SOAP::Transport::::HTTP::Apache/Server.

See SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Apache for intended usage. The package also provides a subroutine for optional usage as dispatcher.

http_proxy

The subroutine http_proxy may be imported from the package to use with SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache directly as an optional_dispatcher. Optional dispatcher usage as shown below is valid with the version of SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache that comes with the SOAP-AutoInvoke package:

 package Apache::SOAPServer;
 use strict;
 use Apache;
 use SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache;
 use SOAP::Transport::ActiveWorks::HTTP::Proxy qw( http_proxy );

 sub handler {

     my $safe_classes ={
         ClassA       => undef,
         ClassB       => undef,
         Calculator   => \&http_proxy,
     };

     SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Apache->handler($safe_classes);

}
