Date Tue, 03 Apr 2018 15:01:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10317?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16424141#comment-16424141

Rajesh Kumar Mallah commented on OFBIZ-10317:



Hi Taher ,

Below is one of the ways to replicate it using curl



below is a simple call to findPartiesById to ensure that the command below is a valid way
invoking  a XML-RPC service.

{{$ curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: text/xml" -d @working.xml   [https://ofbizhost.com/webtools/control/xmlrpc]}}


Below is an attempt  to invoke calculateProductPrice by sending a struct and it is expected
raise error in current state of software. please note  product ID *ENCHILADAS* is a part
of current demo data set.

 $ curl -X POST  -H "Content-Type: text/xml"  -d @not-working.xml  {{[https://ofbizhost.com/webtools/control/xmlrpc]}}


this currently responds with:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><methodResponse xmlns:ex="http://ws.apache.org/xmlrpc/namespaces/extensions"><fault><value><struct><member><name>faultCode</name><value><i4>0</i4></value></member><member><name>faultString</name><value>Type
check failed for field [calculateProductPrice.product]; expected type is [org.apache.ofbiz.entity.GenericValue];
actual type is [java.util.HashMap]</value></member></struct></value></fault></methodResponse>


*Expected Result:* A XML representing the valid price of the the product.

> The existing framework allows invoking  various services via XMLRPC or SOAP 
> as per their argument expectations. However only basic types are handled
> like String , Boolean , Int etc. If a service is expecting a GenericValue eg: 'calculateProductPrice'  
it is not possible to invoke it via SOAP or XMLRPC.
> The reason being SOAP or XMLRPC can support Map and that is the closest 
> it can provide in lieu of any custom Object that a Service might be expecting.
> A generic solution needs to be found so that the full potential of the plethora of 
> exportable services can be utilized by external systems that looks for integrating and

> banking upon OfBiz via XMLRPC or SOAP.
