Hello I am sending XML using SOAP and I need to change the namespace. Below is the code I am using and the results I am getting and what I need to change it to..Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks


Current Script
<?php 

$client = new SoapClient('http://www.dfwebservice.net/DfcsRemittance.asmx?WSDL', array('soap_version' => SOAP_1_2,				'trace' => 1,
		'use' => SOAP_LITERALL,
        'style' => SOAP_DOCUMENT,
		'encoding'=>' UTF-8'));
		
		$typedVar = new SoapVar("mystring", XSD_STRING, "string", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
$params = '<RemittanceRequest><RequestType>BranchListRequest</RequestType><agent>BWS</agent><userid>wbsuser</userid><password>pass@wbs</password></RemittanceRequest>';	
$params = new SoapVar($params, XSD_ANYXML);
	
$result = $client->GetBranchListXML($params);
echo "REQUEST:\n" . $client->__getLastRequest() . "\n";
echo "Response:\n" . $client->__getLastResponse() . "\n";

print_r($result);

Open in new window


The request comes out as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<env:Envelope xmlns:env="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:ns1="http://dfwebservice.net/"><env:Body>
<RemittanceRequest>
<RequestType>BranchListRequest</RequestType>
<agent>BWS</agent>
<userid>wbsuser</userid>
<password>pass@wbs</password>
</RemittanceRequest>
</env:Body>
</env:Envelope>

But I need the request to come out as

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
<soap:Body>
                                <RemittanceRequest>
                                <RequestType>BranchListRequest</RequestType>"
                                <agent>BWS</agent>"
                                 <userid>wbsuser</userid>"
                                <password>pass@wbs</password>
                               </RemittanceRequest>
                                             </soap:Body>
                                                </soap:Envelope>


Thank you for your help!

I don't mean to dash your hopes, but I want to share a risk you're facing.  PHP SOAP support is not very good.  Here is the bug list.  As you can see, there are many bugs that are several years old, suggesting that they are never going to get fixed.  (You may have to copy/paste this URL.  It looks like the EE link builder does not understand arrays.)
https://bugs.php.net/search.php?cmd=display&order_by=id&direction=DESC&limit=30&phpver=5.3&package_name[]=SOAP+related

One such bug involves namespaces.   Variables with the same name, but in different namespaces, collide.  WTF you might say, what's the point of namespaces?  Well, that is exactly what I said when I hit the bug.  It caused a failed project for me after an investment of more than a week of my life.  Hopefully you won't have that experience with your project.

If there is any way at all to get the client to expose a RESTful interface to the API, choose that instead.  If you have to continue to use SOAP, consider NuSOAP (Google it).  It may be better at getting around the vagaries of PHP SOAP support.

It's got its own web sites.  None of my experiences with SOAP (of any sort) have been good at all.  This is a pretty universal condition.  Most of the major internet players have abandoned SOAP because of all the trouble it causes for developers.  Some links that you may want to explore...
