invokeWS Injecting \r\n Character Into SOAPAction Header

Noah Betzen
created an issue

I adapted the following code from the example given here as the web service from the example is no longer operational.

{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}

module Lib
    ( someFunc
    ) where

import           Control.Applicative
import           Data.Text (Text)
import qualified Data.Text as T

import           Network.SOAP (invokeWS, Transport, ResponseParser(CursorParser))
import           Network.SOAP.Transport.HTTP (initTransportWithM)
import           Network.HTTP.Client (defaultManagerSettings)
import           Network.SOAP.Parsing.Cursor (Dict, dictBy, readT, readC)
import           Text.XML (Name)
import           Text.XML.Cursor hiding (element)
import           Text.XML.Writer (elementA, element)

someFunc :: IO ()
someFunc = do
    transport <- initTransportWithM defaultManagerSettings "http://www.webservicex.net/currencyconvertor.asmx" pure pure
    response <- getConversionRate transport (T.pack "USD") (T.pack "NOK")
    print response

getConversionRate :: Transport -> Text -> Text -> IO Dict
getConversionRate t c1 c2 = invokeWS t url () body parser
    url = "http://www.webservicex.net/ConversionRate"
    body = element "web:ConversionRate" $ do
           element "web:FromCurrency" c1
           element "web:ToCurrency" c2

    parser = dictBy "ConversionRateResponse"

When running the service gives back an error:

soap-test-exe: SOAPFault {faultCode = "soap:Client", faultString = "System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server did not recognize the value of HTTP Header SOAPAction: http://www.webservicex.net/ConversionRate.\r\n at System.Web.Services.Protocols.Soap11ServerProtocolHelper.RouteRequest()\r\n at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapServerProtocol.RouteRequest(SoapServerMessage message)\r\n at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapServerProtocol.Initialize()\r\n at System.Web.Services.Protocols.ServerProtocolFactory.Create(Type type, HttpContext context, HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response, Boolean& abortProcessing)", faultDetail = ""}

Using Wireshark to verify what data is actually being sent, there are \r\n characters being injected. They're being injected in the entire request, so apparently HTTP doesn't care. But the SOAPAction header seems to care.

    I see there are quotes in the example on the service site:

    SOAPAction: "http://www.webserviceX.NET/ConversionRate"

    Please try wrapping that into a level of quotes too e.g. using show on the url.

    I assume you mean this? url = show "http://www.webservicex.net/ConversionRate"

    I tried both that and: url = "\"http://www.webservicex.net/ConversionRate\""

    Both had the same result.

    Also I verified the SOAP service with SoapUI:

    SOAP UI:


    With the escaped quotes in the Haskell code:


    I feel silly for not verifying that SOAP UI does the \r\n thing too. My apologies. So something still isn't working, but it could be my implementation of this example. Though I'm not sure what. This issue can probably be closed.
