NumberToWords Worked - Setting Namespace and Parameter

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the SOAP::Data class to build the request parameter element with correct namespace and correct element name.

To control the namespace of the SOAP body message, we need to:

Here is revised test program as NumberToWords_Namespace.pl:

#- NumberToWords_Namespace.pl
#- Copyright (c) 2018 HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
#
   use SOAP::Lite +trace;
   my $client = SOAP::Lite->new();
   $client->proxy(
      'http://www.dataaccess.com/webservicesserver/NumberConversion.wso');
   $client->default_ns('http://www.dataaccess.com/webservicesserver/');

#- Building the parameter element with name and namespace
   my $parameter = SOAP::Data
        ->name("ubiNum")
        ->value(101);
   $parameter->uri('http://www.dataaccess.com/webservicesserver/');

#- Calling the server
   my $som = $client->NumberToWords($parameter);
   my $output = $som->result;
   print $output . "\n";

When executing NumberToWords_Parameter_Name.pl, I got this:

C:\herong>NumberToWords_Namespace.pl

Bingo! I got my first SOAP::Lite program working with NumberToWords Web service provided by dataaccess.com.
