Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-10317) Allowing XML-RPC and SOAP to pass GenericValue objects to services as IN fields
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2018 12:26:00 GMT

Rajesh Kumar Mallah commented on OFBIZ-10317:
---------------------------------------------

Hello Mr Taher ,

Firstly Thanks for initiating this.

Sure i can craft the spanner .

One thing that i  miss is exported services in the demo trunk/stable. The demo trunk
goes a long way to serve as common reference when discussing a wide range of
issues , however to create test cases involving XML/SOAP we have to involve 
local configurations and the test scripts loose their universality. 

It would have been useful if it were possible to utilize the demo infra for such
cases also.

I guess the demo trunk is a sandbox that resets everyday probably we shall need
some persistence mechanisms there for config data.

regds
mallah.

> The existing framework allows invoking  various services via XMLRPC or SOAP 
> as per their argument expectations. However only basic types are handled
> like String , Boolean , Int etc. If a service is expecting a GenericValue eg: 'calculateProductPrice'  
it is not possible to invoke it via SOAP or XMLRPC.
> The reason being SOAP or XMLRPC can support Map and that is the closest 
> it can provide in lieu of any custom Object that a Service might be expecting.
> A generic solution needs to be found so that the full potential of the plethora of 
> exportable services can be utilized by external systems that looks for integrating and

> banking upon OfBiz via XMLRPC or SOAP.
