What have we learned?
Our SOAP Server needs to be more robust.
- Looking at an Apache/Axis solution, among others
Pipeline Pilot’s ability to deal with datatypes returned from a SOAP call is VERY primitive.
- Beware if your “strings” contain extended ASCII characters.
- # of objects sent MUST EQUAL # of objects received
Short duration requests work best in SOAP.
- There is asynchronous SOAP, that we have not yet investigated.
Sometimes you need to get creative with the use of your passed parameters.
Debugging SOAP interactions can take some practice, and some additional tools.
