nusoap WSDL service return array of complex data

I’m just getting the code in the post for now… hopefully I’ll have time to come back and document it for you. I am excluding my config.php on purpose, you’ll need to define you’re own constants in there.

<?php

require_once(“config.php”);
require_once(“nusoap.php”);

/*
* This function takes an $email address and returns an array of email addresses
* that are the given email address’s recent contacts from their address book.
*
* @param string $email (the email address of the user)
* @param string $token (a password that is used for authentication for use of this function, it is NOT the email users password.)
*/
function getAutocompleteContacts( $email, $num, $token ) {
  if ($token != SOAP_TOKEN)
    return new soap_fault(‘Server’, ”, “Supplied token does not match our records”,”);

$email = strtolower(trim($email));

if ( ! ereg( ‘^’.email_reg.’$', $email) )
return new soap_fault(‘Client’, ”, “Must supply a valid email address: $email not valid”,”);

$aDB = DB::connect( ADDR_DSN );
if ( DB::isError($aDB) ) {
return new soap_fault(‘Server’, ”, ‘Service temporarily unavailable: could not connect to ADDR_DSN DB’,”);
}
$aDB->setFetchMode( DB_FETCHMODE_ASSOC );

// REALLY YOU SHOULD DO YOU’RE OWN QUERY, BUT FOR THE SAKE
// OF THIS EXAMPLE, I’M JUST GOING TO INJECT A COUPLE RESULTS:
$result = array();
$result[] = array( ‘contact’ => ‘Chaos Captain’, ‘email’ => ‘choas@sdfusidfousdf.com’);
$result[] = array( ‘contact’ => ‘Joe Joe’, ‘email’ => ‘choas@sdf768sdf798s7df987.com’);

return $result;

#return new soap_fault(‘Server’, ”, ‘Fallthrough error, should have faulted on invalid type above’,”);

}

$HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA = isset($HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA) ? $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA : ”;
$server = new soap_server;
$server->configureWSDL(‘addressbook1′, ‘urn:’.$_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI']);
$server->wsdl->addComplexType(
‘Contact’,
‘complexType’,
‘struct’,
‘all’,
”,
array(
‘contact’ => array(‘name’ => ‘contact’, ‘type’ => ‘xsd:string’),
‘email’ => array(‘name’ => ‘email’, ‘type’ => ‘xsd:string’),
)
);

$server->wsdl->addComplexType(
‘ContactArray’,
‘complexType’,
‘array’,
”,
‘SOAP-ENC:Array’,
array(),
array(
array(‘ref’=>’SOAP-ENC:arrayType’,'wsdl:arrayType’=>’tns:Contact[]‘)
),
‘tns:Contact’
);

$server->register(‘getAutocompleteContacts’,
array(‘email’ => ‘xsd:string’, ‘num’ => ‘xsd:int’, ‘token’ => ‘xsd:string’), // input parameters
array(‘return’ => ‘tns:ContactArray’),
‘urn:’.$_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI'], // namespace
‘urn:’.$_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI'].”#getAutocompleteContacts”, // soapaction
‘rpc’, // style
‘encoded’, // use
‘Fetch array of address book contacts for use in autocomplete’); // documentation

#$server->wsdl->schemaTargetNamespace = $_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI'];
$server->service($HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA);
exit();
?>

Client Code:

<?php
require_once(‘config.php’);
require_once(‘nusoap.php’);

$client = new soapclient(SOAP_SERVER_WSDL_URL, true);

// Check for an error
$err = $client->getError();
if ($err) {
// Display the error
echo ‘<h2>Constructor error</h2><pre>’ . $err . ‘</pre>’;
// At this point, you know the call that follows will fail
}

$result = $client->call(‘getAutocompleteContacts’, array(‘email’=>’something@asdf97s9d8f7sdf.com’, ‘num’=>5, ‘token’=>SOAP_TOKEN) );

print_r($result);
?>

Will production something like this::

Array
(
[0] => Array
(
[contact] => Chaos Captain
[email] => choas@sdfusidfousdf.com
)

[1] => Array
(
[contact] => Joe Joe
[email] => choas@sdf768sdf798s7df987.com
)

)
