I am trying to save result from SOAP function to XML file. I am calling SOAP function getProductListResult of web service http://public.ws.cz.elinkx.biz/service.asmx (description is available without logging).
I want save getProductListResult->ProductList to XML but it is stdClass and cant be converted to string and i got:
Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string

I tried calling $data->getProductListResult->ProductList->any but didnt help (nor $data->getProductListResult->any)

thanks for help
$soap = new SoapClient(CONST_SOAP_EDSoapURL,

	array(  'style'    => SOAP_DOCUMENT,

                    'use'      => SOAP_LITERAL,

		    'trace' => true));

$data = $soap->getProductList(

	array(	'login' => CONST_SOAP_EDLogin,

			'password' => CONST_SOAP_EDPassword,  

			'onStock' => 'true')); //Products on store.	

$doc = new DOMDocument();

$doc->loadXML((string) $data->getProductListResult->ProductList);  // we get exception

$doc->save('_data/ceniky/cenikED.xml');

Open in new window

You can serialize your object to xml from ur web service itself. See below link to see how to serialize

thanks, this url is about serializing objects in generally
I am searching for some class or function or another API to create XML from stdClass
There is PHP function get_object_vars($stdClass) to get members from stdClass and so its possible to create my own stdClass XML serializer, but it is what i didnt want to do

probably there is no general stdClass XML serializer so i will make my own
