NAME

       SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer - Factory for retrieving serializer objects

SYNOPSIS

        # from SOAP::WSDL::Client:
        $serializer = SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer->get_serializer({
            soap_version => $soap_version,
        });

        # in serializer class:
        package MyWickedSerializer;
        use SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer;

        # register as serializer for SOAP1.2 messages
        SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer->register( '1.2' , __PACKAGE__ );

DESCRIPTION

       SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer serves as factory for retrieving serializer objects for
       SOAP::WSDL.

       The actual work is done by specific serializer classes.

       SOAP::WSDL::Serializer tries to load one of the following classes:

       ·   the class registered for the scheme via register()

METHODS

   register
        SOAP::WSDL::Serializer->register('1.1', 'MyWickedSerializer');

       Globally registers a class for use as serializer class.

   get_serializer
       Returns an object of the serializer class for this endpoint.

WRITING YOUR OWN SERIALIZER CLASS

   Registering a deserializer
       Serializer classes may register with SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer.

       Serializer objects may also be passed directly to SOAP::WSDL::Client by using the
       set_serializer method. Note that serializers objects set via SOAP::WSDL::Client's
       set_serializer method are discarded when the SOAP version is changed via set_soap_version.

       Registering a serializer class with SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer is done by executing
       the following code where $version is the SOAP version the class should be used for, and
       $class is the class name.

        SOAP::WSDL::Factory::Serializer->register( $version, $class);

       To auto-register your transport class on loading, execute register() in your tranport
       class (see "SYNOPSIS" above).

   Serializer package layout
       Serializer modules must be named equal to the serializer class they contain.  There can
       only be one serializer class per serializer module.

   Methods to implement
       Serializer classes must implement the following methods:

       ·   new

           Constructor.

       ·   serialize

           Serializes data to XML. The following named parameters are passed to the serialize
           method in a anonymous hash ref:

            {
              method => $operation_name,
              header => $header_data,
              body => $body_data,
            }
