NAME

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM - Deserializer SOAP messages into SOM objects

SYNOPSIS

 use SOAP::WSDL;
 use SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM;
 use SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Deserializer;
 SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Deserializer->register( '1.1', __PACKAGE__ );

DESCRIPTION

Deserializer for creating SOAP::Lite's SOM object as result of a SOAP call.

This package is here for two reasons:

  • Compatibility

    You don't have to change the rest of your SOAP::Lite based app when switching to SOAP::WSDL, but can just use SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM to get back the same objects as you were used to.

  • Completeness

    SOAP::Lite covers much more of the SOAP specification than SOAP::WSDL.

    SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM can be used for content which cannot be deserialized by SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOAP11. This may be XML including mixed content, attachements and other XML data not (yet) handled by SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOAP11.

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM is a subclass of SOAP::Deserializer from the SOAP::Lite package.

METHODS

deserialize

Deserializes a XML sting into a SOAP::SOM object. Returns a SOAP::Fault object on deserialization errors.

generate_fault

Dies with a SOAP::Fault object.

USAGE

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer will not autoregister itself - to use it for a particular SOAP version just use the following lines:

 my $soap_version = '1.1'; # or '1.2', further versions may appear.

 use SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM;
 use SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Deserializer;
 SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Deserializer->register( $soap_version, __PACKAGE__ );

DIFFERENCES FROM OTHER CLASSES

Differences from SOAP::Lite

  • No on_fault handler

    You cannot specify what to do when an error occurs - SOAP::WSDL will return a SOAP::Fault object on transport errors.

Differences from other SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer classes

  • generate_fault

    SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::SOM will die with a SOAP::Fault object on calls to generate_fault.

    This also means that a SOAP::Fault may be thrown as exception when using
