Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-10317) Allowing XML-RPC and SOAP to pass GenericValue objects to services as IN fields
Date Sat, 07 Apr 2018 16:26:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10317?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16429452#comment-16429452

Taher Alkhateeb commented on OFBIZ-10317:
-----------------------------------------

After lots of research, noting here that I suspect that maybe the best place to tackle this
problem is in the conversion api located in package org.apache.ofbiz.base.conversion

More specifically, I suspect we can add the conversion from java.util.HashMap->org.apache.ofbiz.entity.GenericValue
using the converter interface.

The logic to trace from is definitely in package org.apache.ofbiz.webapp.event.XmlRpcEventHandler.
But it is relatively complex, I need to switch constantly between many classes (a major need
of refactoring here!).

Anyway, Work In Progress, we'll see how it goes. The unit tests provided are extremely helpful.

> 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.
