The soap package

[ Tags: library, mit, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

Tools to build SOAP clients using xml-conduit.

A mildly-complicated example:

import Network.SOAP
import Network.SOAP.Transport.HTTP

import Text.XML.Writer
import Text.XML.Stream.Parse as Parse
import           Data.Text (Text)
import qualified Data.Text as T

main :: IO ()
main = do
    -- Initial one-time preparations.
    transport <- initTransport "" id (iconv "cp-1251")

    -- Making queries
    activeStaff <- listStaff transport True
    print activeStaff

data Person = Person Text Int deriving Show

listStaff :: Transport -> Bool -> IO [Person]
listStaff t active = invokeWS t "urn:dummy:listStaff" () body parser
        body = element "request" $ element "listStaff" $ do
                   element "active" active
                   element "order" $ T.pack "age"
                   element "limit" (10 :: Int)

        parser = StreamParser $ force "no people" $ tagNoAttr "people" $ Parse.many parsePerson

        parsePerson = tagName "person" (requireAttr "age") $ \age -> do
                          name <- Parse.content
                          return $ Person name (read . T.unpack $ age)

Notice: to invoke HTTPS services you need to initialize a transport from soap-tls or soap-openssl.
