php and SOAP download operation

Post by kpridgeon »

Can someone please tell me why the SOAP download operation returns an object and not xml?

I am trying to get the response into xml so I can use php's simplexml. I don't want to have to parse the object back to xml. The documentation shows that the downloadResponse should be an xml document.

Thanks for your help.

It may have something to with the fact the SOAP stands for "Simple Object Access Protocol". :)

Instead of using the SOAP methods, you can generate the SOAP header by hand and send it via a HTTP PUT and parse the output yourself. This forum lists a sample SOAP request.
