$schema = SOAP::Schema->new(parse => $schema_uri);
This is the class constructor. With no arguments, it creates a blank object of the class. Any arguments that are passed are treated as key/value pairs in which the key represents one of the methods described here, and the value is what gets passed when the method itself gets invoked.
Parses the internal representation of the service description prior to the generation of stub routines to provide method-like access to the remote services.
Loads the specified service description from the given URL, using the current value of the schema accessor if none is provided. The full content of the URL is returned on success, or an exception is thrown (via "die") on error.
Takes the internal representation of the service and generates code stubs for the remote methods, allowing them to be called as local object methods. Stubs are generated for all the functions declared in the WSDL description with this call because it's enough of a class framework to allow for basic object creation for use as handles.
$current_schema = $schema->schema;
Gets (or sets) the current schema representation to be used by this object. The value to be passed when setting this is just the URI of the schema. This gets passed to other methods such as access for loading the actual content.
$hashref = $schema->services;
Gets or sets the services currently stored on the object. The services are kept as a hash reference, whose keys and values are the list of returned values from the WSDL parser. Keys represent the names of the services themselves (names have been normalized into Perl-compatible identifiers), with values that are also hash references to the internal representation of the service itself.
my $client = SOAP::Lite->new; my $code = $client->service($WSDL_URL)->stub; open FILE,">ServicePackage.pm"; print FILE $code; close FILE;
my $client = SOAP::Lite->new; my $code = $client->cache_dir("/tmp")->service($WSDL_URL)->stub;
If "cache_dir" is undefined, no caching will take place.
If "cache_ttl" is set to 0, the cache will never expire. Files will have to be removed manually in order for the cache to be refreshed.
my $client = SOAP::Lite->new; my $code = $client->cache_ttl(3600)->cache_dir("/tmp")->service($WSDL_URL)->stub;
The default time to live is 0.
my $client = SOAP::Lite->new; $ua = $client->schema->useragent; $ua->agent("Fubar! 0.1"); my $response = $client->service("http://localhost/some.wsdl") ->someMethod("Foo");
Gets or sets the classes UserAgent used for retrieving schemas over the web. This allows users to have direct access to the UserAgent so that they may control the credentials passed to a remote server, or the specific configuration of their HTTP agent.
