GetSpeech_SOAP_1_1.pl - SOAP::Lite for SOAP 1.1 Web Service

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the SOAP::Data class to build the request parameter element with correct element name and a namespace. My first SOAP::Lite program works now with the GetSpeech Web service.

After going through various testing programs, I finalized my GetSpeech program for SOAP 1.1 as, GetSpeech_SOAP_1_1.pl:

#- GetSpeech_SOAP_1_1.pl
#- Copyright (c) 2009 by Dr. Herong Yang, herongyang.com

#
   use SOAP::Lite;

   my $proxy = 'http://www.xmlme.com/WSShakespeare.asmx';
   my $uri = 'http://xmlme.com/WebServices';
   my $method = "GetSpeech";
   my $soapAction = sub {return "$uri/$method"};
   
   my ($phrase) = @ARGV;

#- Building the parameter element
   my $parameter = SOAP::Data
        ->name("Request") # set the element name
        ->value($phrase) # set the value
        ->uri($uri); # set namespace

#- Creating the SOAP client object
   my $client = SOAP::Lite->new()
      ->proxy($proxy) # set the proxy URL
      ->on_action($soapAction) # set the SOAPAction
      ->uri($uri); # set the namespace

#- Calling the Web service
   my $som = $client->call($method=>($parameter));
   my $output = $som->result;
   print $output . "\n";

Here is what I did in the final version:

When executing GetSpeech_SOAP_1_1.pl, I got this:

\herong>GetSpeech_SOAP_1_1.pl "To be, or not to be"
<SPEECH><PLAY>HAMLET</PLAY><SPEAKER>HAMLET</SPEAKER>
To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler 
in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, 
...</SPEECH>

Now you can try it with different phrases from Shakespeare's plays.
