Subject: XMLRPC::Lite does not support serializing <nil/>
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 733b
Meanwhile I was testing an XML-RPC service which allows <nil/> as parameter, I realized XMLRPC::Lite does not support serializing them. I tried using undef values a parameter, but they were silently discarded, so the service complained about the number of parameters. Digging into the XMLRPC::Lite and SOAP::Lite source codes, I realized that a patch to gain <nil/> serialization is as easy as implementing xmlize method on XMLRPC::Serializer: package XMLRPC::Serializer; sub xmlize { my $self = shift; my($name, $attrs, $values, $id) = @{$_[0]}; $attrs ||= {}; return $self->SUPER::xmlize(@_) if(defined($values)); local $self->{_level} = $self->{_level} + 1; return $self->tag($name, $attrs,$self->tag('nil')); }

This service is sponsored and maintained by Best Practical Solutions and runs on infrastructure.
