Subject: UNIVERSAL::can method is broken for SOAP objects
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 220b
See the attached code. Suppose one has an object, not implemented in SOAP. The can() method works as expected: if ($obj->can($methodname)) { ... } If one makes that a SOAP object, the can() method no longer works.

This may be related to version of Perl you are running. From SOAP::Lite man page: +autodispatch doesn't work in Perl 5.8 There is a bug in Perl 5.8's UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD functionality that prevents the +autodispatch functionality from working properly. The workaround is to use dispatch_from instead. Where you might normally do something like this: use Some::Module; use SOAP::Lite +autodispatch => uri => 'urn:Foo' proxy => 'http://...'; You would do something like this: use SOAP::Lite dispatch_from(Some::Module) => uri => 'urn:Foo' proxy => 'http://...';

The attached test code definitely works with 0.70_02 under perl 5.8.8. I added a test for this to track if it occurs again. Regards, Martin
