Hello,

I am trying to do a simple soap call to a weather service and I keep getting Invalid ZIP error. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong below is my code.

Thanks

require_once 'SOAP/Client.php';

$client = new Soap_Client('http://wsf.cdyne.com/WeatherWS/Weather.asmx?WSDL');
$method = 'GetCityWeatherByZIP';
$params = array('ZIP' => '07108');
$result = $client->call($method, $params);

if (PEAR::isError($result)) {
echo $result->getMessage();
} else {
print_r($result);
}

Did you ask cdyne? They know their APIs better than anyone else.

There is no problem with cdyne webservice because it works from my desktop app.

Well, the summary on <http://pear.php.net/package/SOAP/redirected> says:

| **Use PHP's in-built SOAP client!**

They may have good reasons to recommend that. :)

Please avoid the broken Google Groups when posting to Usenet.

I didn't say there was a problem with their web service. I asked if you
asked THEM for help with THEIR APIs.

Also, please learn to trim appropriately - or better yet, get a real
usenet reader.

Who suggested there *was* a problem with cdyne webservice? The point is that if you're
having trouble using their API, you should ask them for help with it.

Four obvious possible explanations for the error message you're seeing:
1) an associative array is not the correct structure to use for passing this parameter
2) 'ZIP' is the wrong name
3) a five-character string is not the expected format for the zip code data
4) 07108 is not a valid zip code

What have you done to eliminate each of these as a possible cause of the problem?

Let me add a fifth obvious possible explanation:
5) everything you have is correct, but it's incomplete: some required label/value pair is
missing, such as a userID or password

I appreciate the responses and I was able to get the web service to work with Microsoft.Net and the built-in PHP SoapClient on my local server. I am not familar with Pear but unfortunately my client hosting company does not support the built-in PHP SoapClient. From my research the code I created should work. Also 07108 is a valid zip code.

Thanks

In that case you need a new hosting company.

company does not

support the built-in PHP SoapClient. From my research the code I
