Testing Perl SOAP::Lite with WSDL Documents

This section provides a tutorial example on how to test Perl SOAP::Lite with a WSDL 2.0 document. It fails with an error.

Once Perl SOAP::Lite is installed, I want to test it with a WSDL 2.0 document, Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl with the following Perl script:

#- Hello_WSDL_20.pl
#- Copyright (c) 2009 HerongYang.com. All Rights Reserved.
   use SOAP::Lite;
   my $wsdl = "file:///C:/herong/Hello_WSDL_20_SOAP.wsdl";
   my $client = SOAP::Lite->service($wsdl);
   print $client->Hello("Hello from client.");

Run the test script:

herong> perl Hello_WSDL_20.pl

Unrecognized method 'Hello'. List of available method(s):

As you can see, Perl SOAP::Lite fails to parse the WSDL 2.0 document. And it is doing a very poor job on reporting the error.

Conclusion: Perl SOAP::Lite does not support WSDL 2.0.

See "Perl SOAP::Lite for WSDL 1.1" chapter on how to use SOAP::Lite with WSDL 1.1 documents.
