Can't call method "saveGeck" on unblessed reference at talk2serive.pl line 16

Why do I get the this error when I run my script with the following command:

perl talk2service.pl 333333 '>>now submitting these files'

Open in new window


Can't call method "saveGeck" on unblessed reference at talk2serive.pl line 16

This is my code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use Data::Dumper;

# declare usage of SOAP::Lite
use SOAP::Lite;
my $submittedFiles = pop @ARGV;
foreach my $geckID (@ARGV) {
  
my $ssc = SOAP::Lite
  -> service('SOME_DOMAIN/main/services/MyWebService?wsdl')
  -> getGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');
  print Dumper $ssc;
  $ssc->{'solution'} .= $submittedFiles;
   $ssc->saveGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');
}

Open in new window


When I change line 16 with this one:

saveGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');

Open in new window


Now I get this error:

Undefined subroutine &main::saveGeck called at talk2service.pl line 16.


AND, this is how $ssc looks like:

$VAR1 = {
          'geckId' => '333333',
          'solution' => 'SOME TEXT',
          'geckStates' => [
                          bless( {
                                   'status' => 'Completed',
                                   'codedOn' => undef
                                 }, 'GeckState' )
                        ]
        };

getGeck and saveGeck are functions of your web service, correct?

This will partly fix your problem.  I'm pretty sure you need to call saveGeck with the service definition (now stored in $svc) but I'm not sure how to get the contents of $ssc into saveGeck.
#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings
use SOAP::Lite;
use Data::Dumper;

my $submittedFiles = pop @ARGV;
foreach my $geckID (@ARGV) {
    my $svc = SOAP::Lite->service('SOME_DOMAIN/main/services/MyWebService?wsdl');
    my $ssc = $svc->getGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');
    print Dumper $ssc;
    $ssc->{'solution'} .= $submittedFiles;
    # something is almost definitely missing here
    # I'm not sure how to get the $ssc values back into saveGeck
    $svc->saveGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');
}

Also,
if I change line 16 with this one:

-> saveGeck($ssc, 'tolgar');

Open in new window


Then I get this error:

syntax error at talk2service.pl line 16, near "-> saveGeck"
Execution of talk2service.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

Now it does not return any error but it also does not put anything in the solution field. However, I wanted to append the new text into this fileld.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use warnings;
use Data::Dumper;
use SOAP::Lite;

my $myFiles = pop @ARGV;
foreach my $geckID (@ARGV) {
  
my $ssc = SOAP::Lite
  -> service('SOME_DOAMIN/main/services/MyWebService?wsdl');
  my $geck = $ssc-> getGeck($geckID, 'tolgar');
  $geck->{'solution'} .= $myFiles;
  $ssc-> saveGeck($geck, 'tolgar'); 
}

Open in new window



This is how I call this file:

perl talk2service.pl 333333 '>>>>now appending'

Open in new window


I expected .= to append but it basically does nothing.


Do you have any idea?

At this point, I think the issue is with you specific web service.  saveGeck should have some way of passing the structure back that you want to save (or else there is another function in your web service for doing the update and saveGeck just commits the save permanently).

Do you have documentation and examples for your web service that you can look through and figure out how to do the updating?

You are right. I am investigating it.

Thanks for your help,
