HRESULT CreateProxy([in] BSTR endpointURL, [in, defaultvalue("")] VARIANT methodNameURI, [in, defaultvalue("$uri#$method")] VARIANT SOAPActionPattern, [out, retval] IDispatch ** Proxy);
This creates a new proxy object, based on the parameters. Once created calls to the proxy object are automatically translated into SOAP calls. the expandable parts of the SOAPAction pattern are $url the SOAP endpoint URL $uri the methodname URI $method the name of the method being called
An IDispatch interface pointer to the newly created proxy object is returned.
Dim pf As Object, sp As Object Set pf = CreateObject("pocketsoap.Factory") ' a simple proxy configuration Set sp = pf.CreateProxy("http://services.xmethods.net/soap", "urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes") Msgbox sp.getQuote(symbol:="INTC") ' getQuote becomes the methodName in the SOAP request, and it will have a single parameter "symbol" with the value "INTC" ' the result of the SOAP call is passed back as the result of the method, and so the quote value for INTC gets displayed in the message box ' this uses a SOAPAction pattern, to generate the correct SOAPAction for different methods ' you will have to check the document for the server you are calling to work out the correct pattern. set sp = pf.CreateProxy("http://example.org/", "http://soap.example.org/", "$uri$method" ' this generates a SOAPAction header of http://soap.example.org/getQuote sp.getQuote(ticker:="MSFT") ' this generates a SOAPAction header of http://soap.example.org/buyStock sp.buyStock(ticker:="MSFT", shares:=200)
