PHP Soap Parameter issue

I am attempting to connect to a SOAP service and am unsuccessful in retrieving the data. I get the structure but no data. The person at the provider has sent me the corrections to my request however, I am not sure how to change my request to accomplish this. Below is my code and the request I am sending and the corrected request they are suggesting. Can anyone help with how to modify?

Thanks!

CODE:

$URL = 'http://addressof?wsdl';

$client = new SoapClient(null, array(
    "location" => $URL,
        "uri"      => "http://givenbyprovider",
        "style"    => SOAP_RPC,
        "use"      => SOAP_ENCODED
    ));

$return = $client->__soapCall("getEsnInfo",
   array('esn' => '12345678')
);


MYREQUEST:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope
xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:ns1="http://xxxx"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
<SOAP-ENV:Body>
<ns1:getEsnInfo>
<param0 xsi:type="xsd:string">12345678</param0>
</ns1:getEsnInfo></SOAP-ENV:Body>
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

SUGGESTED REQUEST:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope
xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:ns1="http://xxxx"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
<SOAP-ENV:Body>
<ns1:getEsnInfo>
<param0 > <esn xsi:type="xsd:string">12345678</esn></param0>
</ns1:getEsnInfo></SOAP-ENV:Body>
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

From what I see, you can NOT format it any other way than the way you have it.  It is not your choice.  It is the defined by PHP.  One way to check things out it to setup a test server and see.  You will need to find out the specific version of the SOAP software they are running.  "Pure soap" I believe just means they installed whatever SOAP software and didn't change the configuration.  They still have to install a soap framework such as Apache CXF.

Is the only difference the following line?

<param0 > <esn xsi:type="xsd:string">12345678</esn></param0>
vs.
<param0 xsi:type="xsd:string">12345678</param0>

I would think this is an error on their side since all the references I find (searching for [SoapClient param0 "xml version"]), such as http://herongyang.com/PHP/php_soap_4.html , show that your syntax is correct.  It may be a "service" specific issue. (such as in this post http://www.sugarcrm.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42690 )

What service are you trying this with?

When you say "I am attempting to connect to a SOAP service", what is the server.  IIS, Apache?  What API?  Etc?  (stuff your provider can tell you)

It is on Apache-Coyote/1.1
Stated by the developer it is a pure soap service.

In the initial posting here their claim is that if the request if formatted properly it is working correctly. However, in using the Soap Client in PHP5 I do not understand how to format my request in the way asked by the developer.

issue resolved by adding the following:

$return = $client->__soapCall("getEsnInfo",
  array('param0',  array('esn' => '12345678'))
