Tech Tip: Using the SOAP Control API with Python
The following code uses Stingray's Control API to list all the running virtual servers on a cluster. The code is written in Python.
conn = SOAPpy.WSDL.Proxy("VirtualServer.wsdl")
names = conn.getVirtualServerNames()
enabled = conn.getEnabled(names)
for i in range(0,len(names)):
if ( enabled ):
Running the example
This code was tested with Python 2.3.5 and version 0.11.5 of the SOAP.py library. Earlier versions of the SOAP.py library (0.8.4) could not correctly parse the WSDL file.
Run the Python script as follows:
By default, most SOAP implementations read the location of the SOAP server from the WSDL file (located in ZEUSHOME/zxtm/etc/wsdl. However, for security reasons, the location of the Stingray Admin Server (including the required administrator username and password) is not embedded in the Stingray WSDL files. Most SOAP toolkits allow you to override the location specified in the WSDL file, but Python's SOAP.py module does not. Before you run this example, edit your WSDL files. Look for the soap:address node at the very end of each WSDL file and edit appropriately:
