NAME

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash - Deserializer SOAP messages into perl hash refs

SYNOPSIS

 use SOAP::WSDL;
 use SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash;

DESCRIPTION

Deserializer for creating perl hash refs as result of a SOAP call.

Output structure

The XML structure is converted into a perl data structure consisting of hash and or list references. List references are used for holding array data.

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash creates list references always at the maximum depth possible.

Examples:

 XML:
 <MyDataArray>
    <MyData>1</MyData>
    <MyData>1</MyData>
 </MyDataArray>

 Perl:
 {
     MyDataArray => {
         MyData => [ 1, 1 ]
     }
 }

 XML:
 <DeepArray>
    <MyData><int>1<int>/MyData>
    <MyData><int>1<int>/MyData>
 </DeepArray>

 Perl:
 {
     MyDataArray => {
         MyData => [
            { int => 1 },
            { int => 1 }
         ]
     }
 }

List reference creation is triggered by the second occurance of an element. XML Array types with one element only will not be represented as list references.

USAGE

All you need to do is to use SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash.

SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash autoregisters itself for SOAP1.1 messages

You may register SOAP::WSDLDeserializer::Hash for other SOAP Versions by calling

 SOAP::Factory::Deserializer->register('1.2',
    SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash)

Limitations

  • Namespaces

    All namespaces are ignored.

  • XML attributes

    All XML attributes are ignored.

Differences from other SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer classes

  • generate_fault

    SOAP::WSDL::Deserializer::Hash will die with a SOAP::WSDL::Fault11 object when a parse error appears

METHODS

deserialize

Deserializes the message.

generate_fault

Generates a SOAP::WSDL::SOAP::Typelib::Fault11 object and returns it.
