Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-10317) Allowing XML-RPC and SOAP to pass GenericValue objects to services as IN fields

-----------------------------------------

Hi Rajesh,

You did a great job already with the test scripts. That saved me a lot of time in getting
the environment setup for testing.

I wish I can tell you there is a quick solution, but it's not very simple. The logic is bigger
than I expected, so I am still in "exploring" phase. I want to find a clean solution that
works for hopefully all scenarios, not just XML-RPC. If we're stuck, however, then maybe we
go for XML-RPC and SOAP event handlers only, not sure! I'll keep you posted.

> 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.
