Description: ------------ DateTime members of complex types when used as output from a SOAP operation are mis-reported by PEAR::SOAP (0.8RC3 beta) as being string types (see echoDate2() for details). The echoDate1() operation correctly reports the dateTime datatype primitive in it's response. Reproduce code: --------------- <?php set_magic_quotes_runtime(0); ini_set("magic_quotes_gpc", 0); class SOAPDateWrap { var $datefied; function SOAPDateWrap ($datefied = NULL) { $this->datefied = $datefied; } } require_once 'SOAP/Value.php'; class SOAPEchoDateService { var $__dispatch_map = array(); var $__typedef = array(); function SOAPEchoDateService() { // Define the SOAPDateWrap Type $this->__typedef['{http://www.optimiser.com/soap}SOAPDateWrap'] = array('datefied' => 'dateTime'); // Define the echoDate1 operation $this->__dispatch_map['echoDate1'] = array('in' => array('inDate' => 'dateTime'), 'out' => array('outDate' => 'dateTime')); // Define the echoDate2 operation $this->__dispatch_map['echoDate2'] = array('in' => array('inDate' => 'dateTime'), 'out' => array('outDateWrap' => '{http://www.optimiser.com/soap}SOAPDateWrap')); } function __dispatch($methodname) { if (isset($this->__dispatch_map[$methodname])) return $this->__dispatch_map[$methodname]; return NULL; } function echoDate1($inDate) { $outDate = $inDate; return new SOAP_Value('outDate', 'dateTime', $outDate); } function echoDate2($inDate) { $outDate = $inDate; return new SOAP_Value('outDateWrap', '{http://www.optimiser.com/soap}SOAPDateWrap', new SOAPDateWrap($outDate)); } } require_once 'Log.php'; require_once 'SOAP/Server.php'; $log = &Log::singleton('file', '/tmp/echoDate.log', 'echoDate', array('mode' => 0666), LOG_INFO); $server = new SOAP_Server; $server->_auto_translation = true; $soapclass = new SOAPEchoDateService(); $server->addObjectMap($soapclass,'urn:SOAPEchoDate'); if (isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']) && $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST') { $log->log("[".getmypid()."] REQUEST: \n".$HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA); ob_start(); $server->service($HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA); $log->log("[".getmypid()."] RESPONSE: \n".ob_get_contents()); ob_end_flush(); } else { require_once 'SOAP/Disco.php'; $disco = new SOAP_DISCO_Server($server,'SOAPEchoDate'); header("Content-type: text/xml"); if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) && strcasecmp($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], 'wsdl') == 0) { echo $disco->getWSDL(); } else { echo $disco->getDISCO(); } exit; } ?> Expected result: ---------------- The datefied member of the SOAPDateWrap complex type returned from the echoDate2() operation should be of type xsd:dateTime as follows: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:ns4="http://www.optimiser.com/soap" xmlns:ns5="urn:SOAPEchoDate" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <SOAP-ENV:Body> <ns5:echoDate2Response> <outDateWrap xsi:type="ns4:SOAPDateWrap"> <datefied xsi:type="xsd:dateTime">2004-05-14T10:21:18.6939682+08:00</datefied></outDateWrap></ns5:echoDate2Response> </SOAP-ENV:Body> </SOAP-ENV:Envelope> Actual result: -------------- The datefied member of the SOAPDateWrap complex type returned from the echoDate2() operation is of type xsd:string as follows: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:ns4="http://www.optimiser.com/soap" xmlns:ns5="urn:SOAPEchoDate" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <SOAP-ENV:Body> <ns5:echoDate2Response> <outDateWrap xsi:type="ns4:SOAPDateWrap"> <datefied xsi:type="xsd:string">2004-05-14T10:21:18.6939682+08:00</datefied></outDateWrap></ns5:echoDate2Response> </SOAP-ENV:Body> </SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

I have the same problem with dateTime (and also had it with another type), so this is apparently still an issue in PEAR::SOAP version 0.9.4. However, there is a workaround by using the SOAP_Value class. My type is an array of struct with several fields (a,b,c). Assume 'b' is the dateTime. To return this properly I use the following to define a single element of the array to return: function get_element($aval,$bval,$cval) { return array( 'a'=>$aval, // simple value works automatically 'b'=>new SOAP_Value('b','dateTime',$bval), // more complex types need to use the SOAP_Value class 'c'=>$cval // simple value works automatically ); } When such an element is returned as response to a SOAP request, 'b' is properly returned as dateTime instead of string.

13:32 < wsdl-help> i did 'registrationDate'=>new SOAP_Value('registrationDate','dateTime',date('c')), 13:33 < wsdl-help> so basically both methods in each other, and its worked. thank you so much you gave me the hints i needed to put me on the right track Not sure if this is a fix, but we basically came up with the following on IRC. Hope it helps closing this issue *soon*.

I don't suppose you want to try it with a newer version of the package / php

This seems to still happen. Bug #14421 has a test for this.
