Hi John

I'm using this snippet in a mod_python-based server (clarens.sf.net):

  import ZSI
  from ZSI import ParsedSoap, SoapWriter, TC, ZSI_SCHEMA_URI, \
    FaultFromFaultMessage, _child_elements, Fault

          ps = ParsedSoap(data)
          arg_data = _child_elements(ps.body_root)
          if len(arg_data) == 0:
            arg = []
            tc = TC.Any()
            arg = [ tc.parse(e, ps) for e in arg_data ]
        except ZSI.ParseException, e:
          return apache.OK

I.e. the method name would be in "method" and the arguments in "arg". I
don't know if this would work for a doc-style service...

The two methods referenced in the exception handler are:

def write_response_soap(req,message,code=apache.OK):
 req.content_type='text/xml; charset="utf-8"'
 req.headers_out['Server'] = "Clarens Apache/ZSI SOAP server %s"%_version


def build_fault_soap(req,call,code,message):
  return ZSI.Fault(code,message).AsSOAP()
