0.9.9 (2012-02-17)

  • Improvement: pull request 255 - Raise an error if fetching a remote WSDL fails. Possible fix for issue 236.

  • Improvement: The value for elementFormDefault (:unqualified, :qualified) can now be specified when creating a Savon::Client. For example: do
      wsdl.element_form_default = :unqualified
  • Improvement: pull request 263 - The SOAP action can now be set via a :soap_action key passed to the #request method.

    client.request(:get_user, :soap_action => :test_action)
  • Fix: pull request 265 - Fixes gemspec problems when bundling under JRuby 1.6.5. Also fixes issue 267.

0.9.8 (2012-02-15)

  • Feature: Savon now ships with Savon::Model. Savon::Model is a lightweight DSL to be used inside your domain models. It's been refactored and is now even more useful than before.

  • Feature: Merged pull request 230 to allow filtering values in logged SOAP request XML messages.

    Savon.configure do |config|
      config.log_filter = ["password"]
  • Feature: Added an option to change the default encoding of the XML directive tag (defaults to UTF-8) to fix issue 234.

    client.request(:find_user) do
      soap.encoding = "UTF-16"
      soap.body = { :id => 1 }
  • Improvement: Merged pull request 231 to gracefully handle invalid response bodies by throwing a Savon::SOAP::InvalidResponseError.

  • Fix: issue 237 - Set the Content-Type and Content-Length headers for every request.

  • Fix: pull request 250 - The Content-Length header should be the size in bytes.

0.9.7 (2011-08-25)

  • Feature: Merged pull request 210 by mboeh to add Savon::SOAP::Response#doc and Savon::SOAP::Response#xpath.

  • Feature: Merged pull request 211 by mattkirman to fix issue 202.

  • Feature: You can now pass a block to Savon::SOAP::XML#body and use Builder to create the XML:

    client.request(:find) do
      soap.body do |xml|
        xml.user do
  • Fix: issue 218 - Savon now correctly handles namespaced Array items in a Hash passed to Savon::SOAP::XML#body=.

  • Fix: Merged pull request 212 to fix savon_spec issue 2.

  • Improvement: issue 222 - Set the Content-Length header.

0.9.6 (2011-07-07)

  • Improvement/Fix: Updated Savon to use the latest version of Wasabi. This should fix issue 155 - Savon can automatically add namespaces to SOAP requests based on the WSDL. Users shouldn't need to do anything differently or even notice whether their WSDL hits this case; the intention is that this will "Just Work" and follow the WSDL. The SOAP details are that if elementFormDefault is specified as qualified, Savon will automatically prepend the correct XML namespaces to the elements in a SOAP request. Thanks to jkingdon for this.

  • Fix: issue 143 - Updating Wasabi should solve this issue.

0.9.5 (2011-07-03)

  • Refactoring: Extracted WSSE authentication out into the akami gem.

0.9.4 (2011-07-03)

  • Refactoring: Extracted the WSDL parser out into the wasabi gem. This should isolate upcoming improvements to the parser.

0.9.3 (2011-06-30)

  • Fix: issue 138 - Savon now supports setting a global SOAP header via Savon.soap_header=.

  • Fixed the namespace for wsse message timestamps from wsse:Timestamp to wsu:Timestamp as required by the specification.

  • Change: Removed support for NTLM authentication until it's stable. If you need it, you can still add the following line to your Gemfile:

    gem "httpi", "0.9.4"
  • Refactoring:

    • Hash#map_soap_response and some of its helpers are moved to Nori v1.0.0. Along with replacing core extensions with a proper implementation, Nori now contains a number of methods for configuring its default behavior:

      • The option whether to strip namespaces was moved to Nori.strip_namespaces
      • You can disable "advanced typecasting" for SOAP response values
      • And you can configure how SOAP response keys should be converted
    • Savon::SOAP::XML.to_hash, Savon::SOAP::XML.parse and Savon::SOAP::XML.to_array are gone. It wasn't worth keeping them around, because they didn't do much. You can simply parse a SOAP response and translate it to a Savon SOAP response Hash via:

      ``` ruby
    • Savon::SOAP::Response#basic_hash is now Savon::SOAP::Response#hash.

0.9.2 (2011-04-30)

  • Fix: issue 154 - Timezone format used by Savon now matches the XML schema spec.

  • Improvement: WSSE basic, digest and timestamp authentication are no longer mutually exclusive. Thanks to mleon for solving issue #142.

  • Improvement: Switched from using Crack to translate the SOAP response to a Hash to using Nori. It's based on Crack and comes with pluggable parsers. It defaults to REXML, but you can switch to Nokogiri via:

    Nori.parser = :nokogiri
  • Improvement: WSDL parsing now uses Nokogiri instead of REXML.

0.9.1 (2011-04-06)

  • Improvement: if you're only setting the local or remote address of your wsdl document, you can now pass an (optional) String to to set wsdl.document. ""
  • Improvement: instead of calling the to_hash method of your response again and again and again, there is now a ' #[]` shortcut for you.


0.9.0 (2011-04-05)

  • Feature: issues #158, #169 and #172 configurable "Hash key Symbol to lowerCamelCase" conversion by using the latest version of Gyoku.

    Gyoku.xml(:first_name => "Mac")  # => "<FirstName></Firstname>"

    You can even define your own conversion formular.

    Gyoku.convert_symbols_to { |key| key.upcase }
    Gyoku.xml(:first_name => "Mac")  # => "<FIRST_NAME></FIRST_NAME>"

    This should also work for the SOAP input tag and SOAPAction header. So if you had to use a String for the SOAP action to call because your services uses CamelCase instead of lowerCamelCase, you can now change the default and use Symbols instead.

    # pre Gyoku 0.4.0
    client.request(:get_user)  # => "<getUser/>
    client.request("GetUser")  # => "<GetUser/>"
    # post Gyoku 0.4.0
    client.request(:get_user)  # => "<GetUser/>"
  • Improvement: issues #170 and #173 Savon no longer rescues exceptions raised by Crack::XML.parse. If Crack complains about your WSDL document, you should take control and solve the problem instead of getting no response.

  • Improvement: issue #172 support for global env_namespace.

    Savon.configure do |config|
      config.env_namespace = :soapenv  # changes the default :env namespace
  • Fix: issue #163 "Savon 0.8.6 not playing nicely with Httpi 0.9.0". Updating HTTPI to v0.9.1 should solve this problem.

  • And if you haven't already seen the new documentation:

0.8.6 (2011-02-15)

0.8.5 (2011-01-28)

0.8.4 (2011-01-26)

0.8.3 (2011-01-11)

  • Moved implementation of Savon::SOAP::Response#to_array to a class method at Savon::SOAP::XML.to_array (05a7d3).

  • Fix for issue #131 (4e57b3).

0.8.2 (2011-01-04)

  • Fix for issue #127 (0eb3da).

  • Changed Savon::WSSE to be based on a Hash instead of relying on builder (4cebc3).

    Savon::WSSE now supports wsse:Timestamp headers (issue #122) by setting Savon::WSSE#timestamp to true:

    client.request :some_method do
      wsse.timestamp = true

    or by setting Savon::WSSE#created_at or Savon::WSSE#expires_at:

    client.request :some_method do
      wsse.created_at =
      wsse.expires_at = + 60

    You can also add custom tags to the WSSE header (issue #69):

    client.request :some_method do
      wsse["wsse:Security"]["wsse:UsernameToken"] = { "Organization" => "ACME", "Domain" => "" }

0.8.1 (2010-12-22)

  • Update to depend on HTTPI v0.7.5 which comes with a fallback to use Net::HTTP when no other adapter could be required.

  • Fix for issue #72 (22074a).

  • Loosen dependency on builder. Should be quite stable.

0.8.0 (2010-12-20)

  • Added Savon::SOAP::XML#env_namespace (51fa0e) to configure the SOAP envelope namespace. It defaults to :env but can also be set to an empty String for SOAP envelope tags without a namespace.

  • Replaced quite a lot of core extensions by moving the Hash to XML translation into a new gem called Gyoku (bac4b4).

0.8.0.beta.4 (2010-11-20)

  • Fix for issue #107 (1d6eda).

  • Fix for issue #108 (f64400...0aaca2) Thanks fagiani.

  • Replaced Savon.response_pattern with a slightly different implementation of the Savon::SOAP::Response#to_array method (6df6a6). The method now accepts multiple arguments representing the response Hash keys to traverse and returns the result as an Array or an empty Array in case the key is nil or does not exist.

    response.to_array :get_user_response, :return
    # => [{ :id => 1, :name => "foo"}, { :id => 2, :name => "bar"}]

0.8.0.beta.3 (2010-11-06)

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

  • Added Savon.response_pattern (0a12fb) 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, which means 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. 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. You now have to explicitly specify whether to use a WSDL document, when instantiating a client.

  • Fix for issue #75. 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. Thanks to Leonardo Borges.

  • Fix for issue #81. Replaced Savon::WSDL::Document#to_s with a to_xml method.

  • Fix for issues #85 and #88.

  • Fix for issue #80.

  • Fix for issue #60.

  • Fix for issue #96.

  • 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)

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.

  • Fix for issues #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.

  • Fix for issue #36.

  • Added feature requested in issue #35.

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

0.7.4 (2010-02-02)

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. Default to UTC to xs:dateTime value for WSSE authentication.

  • Fix for issue #28.

  • Fix for issue #27. 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.

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.

  • Fix for issue #22.

  • Fix for issue #19.

  • Added support for global header and namespaces. See issue #9.

0.7.1 (2010-01-10)

  • The Hash of HTTP headers for SOAP calls is now public via Savon::Request#headers. Patch for issue #8.

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 issue #17.

  • 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.

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.
