z3c.soap 0.5.5

Soap using ZSI in Zope 2

SOAP Support

This SOAP implementation allows you provide SOAP views for objects. The SOAP layer is based on ZSI.

The package requires ZSI 2.0 or better.

SOAP support is implemented in a way very similar to the standard Zope XML-RPC support. To call methods via SOAP, you need to create and register SOAP views.

Version >= 0.5.4 are intended to be used with Zope 2.13 and higher. Older versions (0.5.3 and under) should work correctly with Zope < 2.13

This package is largely inspired from Zope 3 SOAP (http://svn.zope.org/soap).

Let's write a simple SOAP view that echoes various types of input:

>>> import ZSI
>>> from Products.Five import BrowserView
>>> class EchoView(BrowserView):
...
...     def echoString(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoStringArray(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoInteger(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoIntegerArray(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoFloat(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoFloatArray(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoStruct(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoStructArray(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoVoid(self):
...         return
...
...     def echoBase64(self, value):
...         import base64
...         return base64.encodestring(value)
...
...     def echoDate(self, value):
...         import time
...         return time.gmtime(time.mktime(value))
...
...     def echoDecimal(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def echoBoolean(self, value):
...         return value
...
...     def ValidateEmailRequest(self, requestData, response):
...         mail = requestData._Email
...         response._Status = '%s is OK' % mail
...         return response
...
...     def testFault(self):
...         raise ZSI.Fault(ZSI.Fault.Client, "Testing the zsi fault")

Now we'll register it as a SOAP view. For now we'll just register the view for folder objects and call it on the root folder:

>>> from zope.configuration import xmlconfig
>>> ignored = xmlconfig.string("""
... <configure
...     xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"
...     xmlns:browser="http://namespaces.zope.org/browser"
...     xmlns:soap="http://namespaces.zope.org/soap"
...     >
...
...   <!-- We only need to do this include in this example,
...        Normally the include has already been done for us. -->
...
...   <include package="z3c.soap" file="meta.zcml" />
...   <include package="Products.Five" file="meta.zcml" />
...   <include package="z3c.soap"/>
...
...   <soap:view
...       for="OFS.interfaces.IFolder"
...       methods="echoString echoStringArray echoInteger echoIntegerArray
...                echoFloat echoFloatArray echoStruct echoVoid echoBase64
...                echoDate echoDecimal echoBoolean ValidateEmailRequest
...                testFault"
...       class="z3c.soap.README.EchoView"
...       permission="zope2.SOAPAccess"
...       />
...
...   <utility
...       factory="z3c.soap.tests.mailvalidation.validateEmailIn"
...       name="ValidateEmailRequest"
...       provides="z3c.soap.interfaces.IZSIRequestType"/>
...
...   <utility
...       factory="z3c.soap.tests.mailvalidation.validateEmailOut"
...       name="ValidateEmailRequest"
...       provides="z3c.soap.interfaces.IZSIResponseType"/>
...
...
... </configure>
... """)

And call our SOAP method:

>>> from Testing.ZopeTestCase import user_name, user_password
>>> self.setRoles(['Manager'])
>>> print http(r"""
... POST /test_folder_1_ HTTP/1.0
... Authorization: Basic %s:%s

Faults

If you need to raise an error, you can either raise an exception as usual or (if you need more control over fault info) return a ZSI.Fault object directly. Either case causes a fault response to be returned:

Complex Types

For ZSI to successfully marshal complex values (instances of classes), you must define a typecode that describes the object (see the ZSI docs for details on defining typecodes). Once the typecode is defined, it must be accessible through an instance via the attribute name 'typecode' to be automatically marshalled.

Mem tests

>>> import sys
>>> from xml.dom.minidom import Element, Node
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
5
>>> from z3c.soap.tests.mailvalidation import ns1
>>> from ZSI import SoapWriter
>>> from ZSI import TC
>>> element = ns1.ValidateEmailRequest_Dec().pyclass()
>>> element._Email = 'foo@bar.be'
>>> sw = SoapWriter(nsdict={}, header=True, outputclass=None,
...                 encodingStyle=None)
>>> tc = TC.Any(aslist=1, pname='test')

We serialize more than one copy of the previously created element

>>> res = sw.serialize([element, element, element, element, element], tc)
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
19
>>> print sw

>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
19
>>> del res
>>> del sw.body.node
>>> del sw.body
>>> del sw.dom.node

>>> del sw
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
19

So when a soapwriter is deleted there are still 19 references to Element active (this can be a disaster with large xml).

What if we unlink the nodes first:

>>> sw = SoapWriter(nsdict={}, header=True, outputclass=None,
...                 encodingStyle=None)
>>> res = sw.serialize([element, element, element, element, element], tc)
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
19
>>> Node.unlink(sw.body.node)
>>> Node.unlink(sw.dom.node)
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
8
>>> del res
>>> del sw.body.node
>>> del sw.body
>>> del sw.dom.node
>>> del sw.dom
>>> del sw
>>> print sys.getrefcount(Element)
6

There are thus less references to Element when using unlink before deleting the soapwriter object.
