Ruby 1.8.4 Rails 1.1.6 XML post with xmlns

Hi All,

I am migrating a working RoR app from Ruby 1.8.2 with Rails 1.0 to Ruby
1.8.4 and Rails 1.1.6. In the application I post XML such as:

user1 pwd1

In 1.0 of Rails this worked fine but in 1.1.6 it now has the following
in the Parameter line of the development log:

Parameters: {“format”=>#<Mime::Type:0x2b662f8
@string=“application/xml”, @synonyms=[“text/xml”, “application/x-xml”],
@symbol=:xml>, “exception”=>“can’t typecast
http://services.stuff.com/profile/request” (RuntimeError)”,
“action”=>“profile”, “controller”=>“xml”, “raw_post_data”=>"<profile
xmlns=“http://services.stuff.com/profile/request”>\n\tuser1\n\tpwd1\n",
“backtrace”=>[“D:/ruby184/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-1.12.5/lib/action_controller/cgi_ext/cgi_methods.rb:111:in

When I remove the xmlns from the xml then no error is thrown. Is this
a known limitation with rails 1.1.6 that it doesn’t support xmlns? Is
there something I am doing which is causing this problem? Is there a
way to have the xml work the exact same way between 1.0 and 1.1 of
Rails?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi all,

Sorry, but it’s not a reply to your problem. I’m just having the same
problem and I’d like to know if you found a solution. If not, could
someone please help us ?

Thanks

In addition to my previous post, here is a summary of my case :

  • works perfectly with the “invoke” scaffold within Rails
  • works perfectly with command line invocation (curl, wget with
    post-file)
  • doesn’t work with a compiled C program working with libsoap.so
    (called “soapclient” which comes with the library). The generated
    xml-post SEEMS to be the same as I used with the previous tests
    (comparison made with Rails logs backtrace).

All tests performed on the same linux machine.

Cheers

Sam
