SOAPpy : How do I prefix items with a string in a SOAP/XML request?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to build a program to interface to a SOAP/XML interface
provided by one of our vendors. This interface is built with MS SOAP
Toolkit 3.0, so I'm guessig they are running a .NET server. I'm trying
to build my program with Python as I've got to deploy on both Linux
and Sun/Solaris platforms. I'm developing on RedHat Linux 8.0 using
Python 2.2.1 and SOAPpy 0.10.2.

My experimental program almost works, but it isn't putting a necessary
prefix string on the XML items in the request. Here is the incorrect
request my program is generating:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
SOAP-ENV:encodingSty le="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:xsi="http ://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:xsd="http ://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema">
<ns1:Init xmlns:ns1="http ://some.web.servic e/" SOAP-ENC:root="1">
<userPwd xsi:type="xsd:s tring">doug</userPwd>
<userID xsi:type="xsd:s tring">beta.gro lier.doug</userID>
<profileID xsi:type="xsd:s tring"></profileID>
Here is what a working request should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
SOAP-ENV:encodingSty le="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:xsi="http ://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap .org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:xsd="http ://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema">
<ns1:Init xmlns:ns1="http ://some.web.servic e/" SOAP-ENC:root="1">
<ns1:authReques t>
<ns1:userPwd xsi:type="xsd:s tring">doug</ns1:userPwd>
<ns1:userID xsi:type="xsd:s tring">beta.gro lier.doug</ns1:userID>
<ns1:profileI D xsi:type="xsd:s tring"></ns1:profileID>
</ns1:authRequest >

The difference is the 'ns1:' prefix in front of the userPwd, userID
and profileID items in the XML part of the request. Here is my sample
code that is generating the incorrect SOAP request:


from SOAPpy import SOAPProxy
from SOAPpy import SOAPConfig

url = "http://some.web.servic e/direct/direct.asmx"
ns = "http://some.web.servic e/"
sa = "http://some.web.servic e/Init"

server = SOAPProxy(url, namespace=ns, soapaction=sa,
config=SOAPConf ig(debug=1))

rsp = server._ns('ns1 ',
ns).Init(authRe quest={'userID' :'beta.grolier. doug', 'userPwd':'doug ',
'profileID':''} )

print "I'm outta here"

The degug=1 flag makes the program dump the XML requests/responses,
but then it crashes with a traceback because the message I'm getting
back is the server error message, not the expected response.

Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions on how I can tell the SOAPpy
module to add the 'ns1:' prefix to the the items in the request?

Thanks for your help,
Doug Farrell

I'm trying to setup a SOAPpy service under xinetd. Has someone done this sort of thing? Didn't find it from google searches or documentation. This is probably a sockets-level issue, but I was hoping someone in python land had done this with SOAPpy before. The server works fine as simple SOAP server and client pair on localhost. But when I try to put it under xinetd, it fails. Using "xinetd -d" I can see it is failing due to address...
