XML::Compile::SOAP::Daemon::CGI - CGI based server


   is a XML::Compile::SOAP::Daemon


 #### have a look in the examples directory!
 use XML::Compile::SOAP::Daemon::CGI;
 my $daemon = XML::Compile::SOAP::Daemon::CGI->new;

 # initialize definitions from WSDL
 my $wsdl    = XML::Compile::WSDL11->new(...);
 $wsdl->importDefinitions(...); # more schemas
 $daemon->operationsFromWSDL($wsdl, callbacks => ...);

 # per connected client
 my $query = CGI->new;
 $daemon->runCgiRequest(query => $query);


This module handles the exchange of SOAP messages via Apache, using mod_perl and the popular Perl module CGI. Have a look at the examples/ directory, contained in the XML-Compile-SOAP-Daemon distribution.

This abstraction level of the object (code in this pm file) is not concerned with parsing or composing XML, but only worries about the HTTP transport specifics of SOAP messages.

Running the server


Process the content of a single message. Not to be called directly.


Used by runCgiRequest() to process a connection. Not to be called directly.

 -Option     --Default
  postprocess  undef
  query        <created internally>
postprocess => CODE

When defined, the CODE will get called with a HASH (containing OPTIONS and other compile information), a HASH of headers (which you may change), the HTTP return code, and a reference to the message body (which may be changed as well).

Be warned that the message body must be considered as bytes, so not as Latin1 or utf-8 string. You may wish to add or remove bytes. The Content-Length will be added to the headers after the call.

query => <CGI object>


$obj->addHandler(NAME, SOAP, CODE)

How to use the CGI module

The code and documentation for this module was contributed by Patrick Powell in December 2010. Both have seen major changes since.

Go to the examples/mod_perl/ directory which is included in the distribution of this module, XML::Compile::SOAP::Daemon. There you find a README describing the process.


This module is part of XML-Compile-SOAP-Daemon distribution version 3.05, built on August 16, 2012. Website:
