Hello,
I've had great success in using nusoap to make calls to another server and parse results... until I tried sending CDATA. It converted all the XML data in my parameter string into entities (see file attached).

Here's a simplified version of what I have. Any thoughts on how to prevent nusoap from messing with my request? :)

<?php
include_once 'nusoap-0.9.5/lib/nusoap.php';
	
$functionName = 'Say';
$request['Text'] = array(
	'SynthString' => '<![CDATA[I am <prosody rate="x-slow">very happy</prosody>]]>',
	'Encoding' => 'UTF-8'
);
$request['VoiceInfo'] = array(
	'Name' => 'Princess',
	'Owner' => 'Cepstral'
);
$request['AudioInfo'] = array(
	'SignalRate' => '16',
	'Format' => 'mp3',
	'DeliveryType' => 'link'
);

$soapClient = new nusoap_client('http://' . 'theserver.com', false);
$result = $soapClient->call($functionName, $request);

//write request to file as seen as an attachment for this post
$myFile = "request.xml";
$fh = fopen($myFile, 'w') or die("can't open file");
$stringData = $soapClient->request;
fwrite($fh, $stringData);
fclose($fh);
?>

Open in new window


Thanks much for the assist in advance! :D

OK, I found the magic variable in the nusoap_base class in nusoap.php:

        /**
	 * toggles automatic encoding of special characters as entities
	 * (should always be true, I think)
	 *
	 * @var boolean
	 * @access private
	 */
	var $charencoding = true;

Open in new window


Setting it to false makes my calls work again. Yay! 50% there.

Now, how do I set this without changing the base class file? Since it's a private variable, the following causes an error:
$soapClient = new nusoap_client('http://' . 'theserver.com', false);
$soapClient->$charencoding = false;

I have not done this myself, but you might try -

$soapclient->charencoding = false;

In Object Oriented coding, you do NOT place a second  $  as you did
