Subject How to set SOAPAction header for SOAP 1.1?
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2010 18:19:29 GMT

I'm trying to write a SOAP client for the public SOAP service at:

My attempts fail due to an empty SOAPAction header: Axis2/C 1.6.0 sends this:
User-Agent: Axis2C/1.6.0
SOAPAction: ""
Content-Length: 199
Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=""><soapenv:Body><get_Password

The response is:
HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error.

According to the faultstring, the problem is the [SOAPAction: ""] header.

I tried to set the soap_action in the client options, but it looks like that does nothing:

        /* The axutil_string_create_const() is strange. See AXIS2C-1443 */
        axis2_char_t *SOAP_ACTION;
        axis2_options_set_soap_action(options, env, axutil_string_create_const(env, &SOAP_ACTION));

The full source code is attached. I plan to release it as an AXIS2/C sample when it's done.
