Issue with string arrays using soap Web Service

Repost because I can’t find the original…

I’m using a soap based web service (Backend in Java XFire web service).
I can connect fine and even execute the web service. The issue is
that I have 3 fields that are string arrays. I am passing in data
correctly I believe. But the outgoing soap message is not showing the
array data. Has anybody run into something like this?

I’ll paste the basics of the code below:

  url = "<VALID URL HERE>"
  urn = "urn:<VALID SERVICE HERE>"
  soap = SOAP::RPC::Driver.new(url, urn)

      # I've tried addign it specifically and letting the following

create it:
# soap =
SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new(wsdl_url).create_rpc_driver
# Neither worked.
soap.add_method(‘serviceName’, ‘in0’, ‘in1’, ‘in2’, ‘in3’, ‘in4’,
‘in5’, ‘in6’, ‘in7’)

      # This will dump out the messages being sent and received.
  soap.wiredump_file_base = "soapresult"

     #This creates an array of Strings from the NODE parameters of

my categories.
categories = getSelectedCategories(@params[“NODE”])

     # Prints array entries so I know there is actual data there.
  i = 0
  categories.each do |d|
    db("Category = [#{categories[i]}]")
    i += 1
  end

     # Setting up the valid fields for the query.
  categoryOptions = []
  appId = "servicetest"
  domains = nil
  locale = "<VALID LOCALE>"
  markuptype = "<VALID TYPE - String >"
  markupoptions = nil  #This is also an array of strings...but

isn’t needed yet.

      # One of many permutations of the calls I've tried.  I can

get a response from the
# service. But I can’t get the String Array part of the SOAP
document filled
# out correctly.
@results = soap.serviceName([:in0 => doc], [:in1 => categories],
[:in2 => categoryOptions], [:in3 => appId], [:in4 => domains], [:in5 =>
locale], [:in6 => markuptype], [:in7 => markupoptions])


Sent values in the SOAP body:

env:Body
<n1:serviceName xmlns:n1=“http://”>
n1:in0madonna</n1:in0>
n1:in1
n1:string</n1:string> # The in1 field is the array…and
dosn’t get the 3 strings in it!!!
</n1:in1>
n1:in2
n1:string</n1:string>
</n1:in2>
n1:in3servicetest</n1:in3>
n1:in4
n1:string</n1:string>
</n1:in4>
n1:in5en_us</n1:in5>
n1:in6InlineHrefMarkup</n1:in6>
n1:in7
n1:string</n1:string>
</n1:in7>
</n1:getMarkupDoc>
</env:Body>

Oh yeah…don’t blame me for the WSDL. It’s a java XFire generated
one.

Thanks for any help!

Anybody?

Hi there.

Did you ever find a solution to this problem because I think I am
experiencing something similar: Using Ruby as SOAP Client, I have to
send an array as an input parameter and I’ve tried every variation of
sending the data into the SOAP method possible but I still can’t get
the data into the SOAP message and as such I can’t get the data I need
back from the web service on the other side (written by a 3rd party
in .net).

Any assistance would be hugely appreciated!

Thanks,
Phillipa.
