Attributes for Soap elements


#1

Hi,

I’m accessing a web service that is largely using attributes rather
than elements for the request. How can I create a request containing
attributes?

I create the SOAP driver with

require ‘soap/wsdlDriver’
driver = SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new(wsdlURL).create_rpc_driver

and can elicit appropriate responses from the server for requests that
pass the data as elements:

driver.getSomething(:foo=>“bar”)

However, most requests require the data to be passed as attributes.
For example, a simplified WSDL reads in part

How will I craft a request to the GetItem service with appropriate
values for X and Y?

Thanks,
Roy.
