Probably easier if I start with some background info. I have a property portal website and normally an agent would provide me with a link to an xml file containing details of their properties. I set up a cron job and collect their xml file from the url and update our database. Easy.
However, several of our agents are switching to an Estate Agent software package called Hecktor via http://www.la-boite-immo.com/
. When requesting a link to an xml file they then referred me to krier.fr who provided me with login details to their SOAP web service and directed me to this page http://alize.krier.fr/AlizeWS/ExportXmlWs.asmx
. After several exchanges of emails I was finally able to see the xml data in a browser window by going to this page and entering the login details http://www.soapclient.com/soapclient?template=/clientform.html&fn=soapform&SoapTemplate=/SoapResult.html&SoapWSDL=http://alize.krier.fr/AlizeWS/ExportXmlWS.asmx%3Fwsdl&_ArraySize=2
(Obviously I can't give any log in details)
This is a snippet of what I'm seeing
soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
What I want to do is capture the data and save it (Basically everything between <lots></lots>). I can then parse it and update our database.
After hours of trawling the internet I have got this far
$client = new SoapClient("http://alize.krier.fr/AlizeWS/ExportXmlWs.asmx?wsdl", array('loginAnnonceur' => "xxxxxx",
'motDePasseAnnonceur' => "xxxxxx",
'codeAgence' => "xxxxxx",
'trace' => 1));
$result = $client->GetXmlData($params);
I know I need to put something in $params but have no idea what. If I leave $params empty it throws an error:
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught SoapFault exception: [soap:Server] System.Web.Services.Protoc
ception: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.ArgumentNullExcepti
on: Value cannot be null etc and it highlights the line $result=
I just cannot work out what to put for $params so that I can capture all the xml data.
I've been back to krier.fr and asked for help/examples and been told they can't help.
