SOAPpy and ArrayOfString

Hello all,

I am trying to use a web services API with Python and SOAPpy as a
client. Some of the method paramters in this web service's WSDL are
asking for an "ArrayOfStr ing" type. Here is my code so far:

#!/usr/bin/python

from SOAPpy import WSDL

wsdlFile =
'http://localhost:8080/axis/services/USD_R11_WebServ ice?WSDL'

server = WSDL.Proxy(wsdl File)

server.soapprox y.config.dumpSO APOut = 1
server.soapprox y.config.dumpSO APIn = 1

SID = server.login('s rvcdesk', 'xxxxxxxx')

contacts = server.doSelect (SID, 'cnt', "userid = 'abeju01'", 1,
['last_name', 'first_name', 'userid'])
I tried using a simple Python list for the argument that wants
"ArrayOfString" . Python generates the following XML for the last
argument of the "doSelect" command above:

<v5 SOAP-ENC:arrayType=" xsd:string[3]" xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:Array">
<item>last_name </item>
<item>first_nam e</item>
<item>userid</item>
</v5>
The web service does not like this at all and returns the following
error:

SOAPpy.Types.fa ultType: <Fault soapenv:Server. userException:
org.xml.sax.SAX Exception: Bad types (class [Ljava.lang.Obje ct; -class
usdjws65.ArrayO fString): >
I know in Perl I had to do some special gyrations to pass the right
structue for ArrayOfString to this same web service. Is there any way
to force a type in Python or any other ideas on how to do this?

Figured it out. This works:
#!/usr/bin/python

import SOAPpy

wsdlFile =
'http://localhost:8080/axis/services/USD_R11_WebServ ice?WSDL'

server = SOAPpy.WSDL.Pro xy(wsdlFile)

server.soapprox y.config.dumpSO APOut = 1
server.soapprox y.config.dumpSO APIn = 1

SID = server.login('s rvcdesk', 'xxxxxxxxx')

attr = SOAPpy.structTy pe()
attr._addItem(' string', 'userid')
attr._addItem(' string', 'last_name')
attr._addItem(' string', 'first_name')

contacts = server.doSelect (SID, 'cnt', "userid = 'srvcdesk'", 1, attr)

print contacts

server.logout(S ID)
The XML generated is very similar, but my web service seems to like
this for some reason...weird.

Hi, Can anyone provide me with sample code that will allow me to use SOAPpy with a WSDL file using HTTP basic authentication? The only thing I've been able to find on the net is SOAPpy.URLopener. However, I am unclear what the relationship is between SOAPpy.URLopener and SOAPpy.WSDL is. Is it as straightforward as this? > from SOAPpy import WSDL

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.

But when I try to put it under xinetd, it fails. Using "xinetd -d" I can see it is failing due to address...

Hi, I am using python SOAPpy module to call a web service. Call to web service gets executed successfully. I am facing a problem if the call to WS results into redirect. I get "HTTPError: <HTTPError 302 Moved Temporarily>" If I enable the debug info, I do get the new redirected url. How do I divert my WS request to new url?

I am trying to use a webservice with SOAPpy: import SOAPpy intact_wsdl = "http://www.ebi.ac.uk/intact/binary-search-ws/binarysearch?wsdl" intact_serv = SOAPpy.WSDL.Proxy(intact_wsdl) The resulting error message is posted below. If I understand it right, XMLSchema.py complains about the imported XSD namespace being the same as the existing targetNamespace.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
