Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory::soap(3) A SOAP-based access to the list of analysis tools


Do not use this object directly, it is recommended to access it and use it through the Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory module:

use Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory;
my $list = Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory->new(-access => 'soap')
print join ("\n", @$list) . "\n";


All public methods are documented in the interface module "Bio::Factory::AnalysisI".


Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list. Your participation is much appreciated.

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

 Usage   : my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory->new(@args);
           (_initialize is internally called from the 'new()' method)
 Returns : nothing interesting
 Args    : This module recognises and uses following arguments:
           Additionally, the main module Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory
           recognises also:

It populates calling object with the given arguments, and then - for some attributes and only if they are not yet populated - it assigns some default values.

This is an actual new() method (except for the real object creation and its blessing which is done in the parent class Bio::Root::Root in method _create_object).

Note that this method is called always as an object method (never as a class method) - and that the object who calls this method may already be partly initiated (from Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory::new method); so if you need to do some tricks with the 'class invocation' you need to change Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory new method, not this one.

A URL (also called an endpoint) defining where is located a Web Service functioning for this object.

Default is "" (a service running at European Bioinformatics Institute on top of most of the EMBOSS analyses, and on top of few others).

For example, if you run your own Web Service using Java(TM) Apache Axis toolkit, the location might be something like "http://localhost:8080/axis/services".

In addition to the location parameter, you may need to specify also a location/URL of an HTTP proxy server (if your site requires one). The expected format is "http://server:port". There is no default value.
Defines your own SOAP::Lite object. Useful if you need finer-grained access to many features and attributes of the wonderful Paul Kulchenko's module.
