0.8.0.beta.2 (2010-11-05)

  • Added Savon.response_pattern to automatically walk deeper into the SOAP response Hash when a pattern (specified as an Array of Regexps and Symbols) matches the response. If for example your response always looks like ".+Response/return" as in:

    <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
        <ns2:authenticateResponse xmlns:ns2="">

    you could set the response pattern to:

    Savon.configure do |config|
      config.response_pattern = [/.+_response/, :return]

    then instead of calling:

    response.to_hash[:authenticate_response][:return]  # :some => "thing"

    to get the actual content, Savon::SOAP::Response#to_hash will try to apply given the pattern:

    response.to_hash  # :some => "thing"

    Please notice, that if you don't specify a response pattern or if the pattern doesn't match the response, Savon will behave like it always did.

  • Added Savon::SOAP::Response#to_array (which also uses the response pattern).

0.8.0.beta.1 (2010-10-29)

  • Changed to accept a block instead of multiple Hash arguments. You can access the wsdl, http and wsse objects inside the block to configure your client for a particular service.

          # Instantiating a client to work with a WSDL document
    client = do
      wsdl.document = ""
          # Directly accessing the SOAP endpoint
          client = do
      wsdl.endpoint = ""
      wsdl.namespace = ""
  • Fix for issue #77 (Cache parsed WSDLs locally). You can now use local WSDL documents:

    client = do
      wsdl.document = "../wsdl/service.xml"
  • Changed the way SOAP requests are being dispatched. Instead of using method_missing, you now use the new #request method, which also accepts a block for you to access the wsdl, http, wsse and soap object. Please notice, that a new soap object is created for every request. So you can only access it inside this block.

    # A simple request to an :authenticate method
    client.request :authenticate do
      soap.body = { :id => 1 }
  • The new Savon::Client#request method fixes issues #37, #61 and #64, which report problems with namespacing the SOAP input tag and attaching attributes to it. Some usage examples:

    client.request :get_user                  # Input tag: <getUser>
    client.request :wsdl, "GetUser"           # Input tag: <wsdl:GetUser>
    client.request :get_user :active => true  # Input tag: <getUser active="true">
  • Savon's new #request method respects the given namespace. If you don't give it a namespace, Savon will set the target namespace to "xmlns:wsdl". But if you do specify a namespace, it will be set to the given Symbol.

  • Refactored Savon to use the new HTTPI ( gem. HTTPI::Request replaces the Savon::Request, so please make sure to have a look at the HTTPI library and let me know about any problems. Using HTTPI actually fixes the following two issues.

  • Savon now adds both "xmlns:xsd" and "xmlns:xsi" namespaces for you. Thanks Averell. It also properly serializes nil values as xsi:nil = "true".

  • Fix for issue #24 (HTTP Digest Authentication). Instead of Net/HTTP, Savon now uses HTTPI to execute HTTP requests. HTTPI defaults to use HTTPClient which supports HTTP digest authentication.

  • Fix for issue #76 (Config setting for WSDL-free operation). You now have to explicitly specify whether to use a WSDL document, when instantiating a client.

  • Fix for issue #75 (Add response to SoapFault). Both Savon::SOAP::Fault and Savon::HTTP::Error now contain the HTTPI::Response. They also inherit from Savon::Error, making it easier to rescue both at the same time.

  • Fix for issue #87 (Namespaced entries in the xml). Thanks to Leonardo Borges.

  • Fix for issue #81 (irb on Ruby 1.9.2 doesn't disable wsdl). Replaced Savon::WSDL::Document#to_s with a #to_xml method.

  • Fix for issues #85 and #88 (When gzip is enabled, binary data is logged).

  • Fix for issue #80 (URI-reference is not quoted in Soapaction HTTP header).

  • Fix for issue #60 (Savon::WSSE does not set wsu:Id attribute in wsse:UsernameToken tag).

  • Fix for issue 96 (Savon doesn't guess upper_camelcased action).

  • Removed global WSSE credentials. Authentication needs to be set up for each client instance.

  • Started to remove quite a few core extensions.

0.7.9 (2010-06-14)

  • Fix for issue #53 (DateTime#to_soap_value assumes UTC).

0.7.8 (2010-05-09)

  • Fixed gemspec to include missing files in the gem.

0.7.7 (2010-05-09)

  • SOAP requests now start with a proper XML declaration.

  • Added support for gzipped requests and responses ( While gzipped SOAP responses are decoded automatically, you have to manually instruct Savon to gzip SOAP requests:

    client = "", :gzip => true
  • Fix for issue #51. Added the :soap_endpoint option to which lets you specify a SOAP endpoint per client instance:

    client = "",
      :soap_endpoint => "http://localhost/UserService"
  • Fix for issue #50. Savon still escapes special characters in SOAP request Hash values, but you can now append an exclamation mark to Hash keys specifying that it's value should not be escaped.

0.7.6 (2010-03-21)

  • Moved documentation from the Github Wiki to the actual class files and established a much nicer documentation combining examples and implementation (using Hanna) at:

  • Added Savon::Client#call as a workaround for dispatching calls to SOAP actions named after existing methods. Fix for issue #48.

  • Add support for specifying attributes for duplicate tags (via Hash values as Arrays). Fix for issue #45.

  • Fix for issue #41 (Escape special characters (e.g. &) for XML requests).

  • Fix for issue #39 and #49. Added Savon::SOAP#xml which let's you specify completely custom SOAP request XML.

0.7.5 (2010-02-19)

  • Fix for issue #34 (soap_actions returns empty for wsdl12).

  • Fix for issue #36 (Custom WSDL actions broken).

  • Added feature requested in issue #35 (Setting an attribute on an element?).

  • Changed the key for specifying the order of tags from :@inorder to :order!

0.7.4 (2010-02-02)

  • Fix for issue #33 (undefined method start_with?).

0.7.3 (2010-01-31)

  • Added support for Geotrust-style WSDL documents (Julian Kornberger

  • Make HTTP requests include path and query only. This was breaking requests via proxy as scheme and host were repeated (Adrian Mugnolo

  • Avoid warning on 1.8.7 and 1.9.1 (Adrian Mugnolo

  • Fix for issue #29 (WSSE Created Bug?). Default to UTC to xs:dateTime value for WSSE authentication.

  • Fix for issue #28 (Undefined Method ssl? on URI::Generic).

  • Fix for issue #27 (http content-type defaults to utf-8). The Content-Type now defaults to UTF-8.

  • Modification to allow assignment of an Array with an input name and an optional Hash of values to soap.input. Patches issue #30 (stanleydrew

  • Fix for issue #25 (header-tag should not be sent if not set).

0.7.2 (2010-01-17)

  • Exposed the Net::HTTP response (added by Kevin Ingolfsland). Use the "http" accessor (response.http) on your Savon::Response to access the Net::HTTP response object.

  • Fix for issue #21 (savon is stripping ?SOAP off the end of WSDL locations).

  • Fix for issue #22 (REXML::ParseException parsing 401 Unauthorized response body).

  • Fix for issue #19 (Unable to set attribute in name-spaced WSSE password element).

  • Added support for global header and namespaces. See issue #9 (Setting headers and namespaces).

0.7.1 (2010-01-10)

0.7.0 (2010-01-09)

This version comes with several changes to the public API! Pay attention to the following list and read the updated Wiki:

  • Changed how Savon::WSDL can be disabled. Instead of disabling the WSDL globally/per request via two different methods, you now simply append an exclamation mark (!) to your SOAP call: client.get_all_users! Make sure you know what you're doing because when the WSDL is disabled, Savon does not know about which SOAP actions are valid and just dispatches everything.

  • The Net::HTTP object used by Savon::Request to retrieve WSDL documents and execute SOAP calls is now public. While this makes the library even more flexible, it also comes with two major changes:

    • SSL client authentication needs to be defined directly on the Net::HTTP object:

      client.request.http.client_cert = ...

      I added a shortcut method for setting all options through a Hash similar to the previous implementation:

      client.request.http.ssl_client_auth :client_cert => ...

    • Open and read timeouts also need to be set on the Net::HTTP object:

      client.request.http.open_timeout = 30 client.request.http.read_timeout = 30

    • Please refer to the Net::HTTP documentation for more details:

  • Thanks to JulianMorrison, Savon now supports HTTP basic authentication:

    client.request.http.basic_auth "username", "password"

  • Julian also added a way to explicitly specify the order of Hash keys and values, so you should now be able to work with services requiring a specific order of input parameters while still using Hash input.

    client.find_user { |soap| soap.body = { :name => "Lucy", :id => 666, :@inorder => [:id, :name] } }
  • Savon::Response#to_hash now returns the content inside of "soap:Body" instead of trying to go one level deeper and return it's content. The previous implementation only worked when the "soap:Body" element contained a single child. See:

  • Added Savon::SOAP#namespace as a shortcut for setting the "xmlns:wsdl" namespace.

    soap.namespace = ""

0.6.8 (2010-01-01)

  • Improved specifications for various kinds of WSDL documents.

  • Added support for SOAP endpoints which are different than the WSDL endpoint of a service.

  • Changed how SOAP actions and inputs are retrieved from the WSDL documents. This might break a few existing implementations, but makes Savon work well with even more services. If this change breaks your implementation, please take a look at the +action+ and +input+ methods of the Savon::SOAP object. One specific problem I know of is working with the createsend WSDL and its namespaced actions.

    To make it work, call the SOAP action without namespace and specify the input manually:

    client.get_api_key { |soap| soap.input = "User.GetApiKey" }

0.6.7 (2009-12-18)

  • Implemented support for a proxy server. The proxy URI can be set through an optional Hash of options passed to instantiating Savon::Client (Dave Woodward

  • Implemented support for SSL client authentication. Settings can be set through an optional Hash of arguments passed to instantiating Savon::Client (colonhyphenp)

  • Patch for issue #10 (Problem with operation tags without a namespace).

0.6.6 (2009-12-14)

  • Default to use the name of the SOAP action (the method called in a client) in lowerCamelCase for SOAP action and input when Savon::WSDL is disabled. You still need to specify soap.action and maybe soap.input in case your SOAP actions are named any different.

0.6.5 (2009-12-13)

  • Added an open_timeout method to Savon::Request.

0.6.4 (2009-12-13)

  • Refactored specs to be less unit-like.

  • Added a getter for the Savon::Request to Savon::Client and a read_timeout setter for HTTP requests.

  • wsdl.soap_actions now returns an Array of SOAP actions. For the previous "mapping" please use wsdl.operations.

  • Replaced WSDL document with stream parsing.
