Back in Aug 2005, I found something wrong with the http://www.paypal.com/wsdl/PayPalSvc.wsdl file, it’s still a problem!
I have a really interesting situation trying to retrieve order information from Paypal. I compiled PHP 5.0.4 –with-soap thinking that I would just use the built in Soap implemention that comes with PHP5. So, I start with PayPal’s GetTransactionDetails API call. It didn’t work because the service address location defined in the production WSDL has the sandbox URL in it. I complained about this to Paypal, they ignored it, and even released another, version 2.0, of their WSDL with the same mistake in it. I don’t know what they’re doing over there… I can hardly believe that they are allowing this mistake to continue to live in production for weeks (now becoming months).
