Ruby SOAP Client Question

I am attempting to write a small SOAP client script using Ruby 1.8.2
for Windows. The SOAP server will be located on the other side of an
authenticating proxy server. I see there’s a #setHttpProxy method
available that I can use to specify the host and the port. Is there a
quick and easy way to set the username and password? I tried using
http://username:[email protected] as the URL but no luck.

Any suggestions?

See

for instructions on basic authentication.

Thanks for submitting this. What you have posted appears to deal with a
WSDL service that requires client authentication. I am talking about a
proxy server that sits between the client and the WSDL service. Right
now I am noodling around with SOAP::Env.getenv(‘http_proxy’) to see if
I can get the username:password portion of the URI to parse out so I
can use the #setHttpProxy method. We’ll see…

Would SOAP::HTTPConfigLoader::set_basic_auth(…) be of any help with
this? (Just a shot in the dark - I’ve only done a little w/soap and it
was a while back.)

Unfortunately current soap4r (including development version) does not
support Proxy (basic) Authentication. If I remember correctly, net/http
support Proxy (basic) Authentication so I should be able to implement
this feature easily.

Is there anyone who have done this fix?

I haven’t done this personally, but I think that would be very nice
addition. I’ve needed it a couple of times for sure.

+1.
