encodingStyle="uri" Required for rpc/encoded

This section provides a tutorial example on how to write a PHP program to call an RPC method based Web service using the SoapClient class. The Web service WSDL document has encodingStyle='uri' included.

To finish testing SoapClient class with RPC method based Web services, I wrote another SoapClient program with another Web service, GetStockPrice_WSDL_11_SOAP_11_RPC.wsdl, which has the encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" included.

Here is the example PHP program, GetStockPrice_Client.php:

<?php 
# GetStockPrice_Client.php
# Copyright (c) 2009 HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
#
#- Loading the WSDL document
   $server = "http://www.herongyang.com/Service/";
   $wsdl = $server . "GetStockPrice_WSDL_11_SOAP_11_RPC.wsdl";
   $client = new SoapClient($wsdl,
      array('trace' => TRUE));

#- Calling the RPC method
   $result = $client->GetStockPrice('GOOG', 'NASDAQ', '2007-07-07');

#- Showing the result
   print "Stock price is: $result\n";

#- Showing the request and response
   print $client->__getLastRequest()."\n";
   print $client->__getLastResponse()."\n";
?>

Notice that: array('trace' => TRUE) is added as an option to allow me to use __getLastRequest() and __getLastResponse() methods.

Execution result of this example is presented below:

C:\herong\>\local\php\php GetStockPrice_Client.php
Stock price is: 552.16

     </SOAP-ENV:GetStockPrice>
   </SOAP-ENV:Body>
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

      <pricePart xsi:type="xsd:decimal">552.16</pricePart>
    </hy:GetStockPriceResponse>
  </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>
