Rajesh Kumar Mallah commented on OFBIZ-10317:

Hi Taher,

Yeah it was a ambiguous term to use. can't help though owing to my limit 
experience :)  shall try to be more careful.
Even if we close this issue it shall bite us back when creating 
inter-interoperability features like JSON based apis 

{quote}The best solution that I can think for you is to design adapter services 
in the middle that talk to the target services you want to use, if we create 
some kind of hack (like passing the entity name in the XML-RPC call) then our 
converters would _only_ work for XML-RPC, which is a pretty bad design anyway.
would try to do the same. I already did so to keep the show running . 
please feel free to take a call on this issue.




> Allowing XML-RPC and SOAP to pass GenericValue objects to services as IN

>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: framework/webtools
>    Affects Versions: 16.11.04
>            Reporter: Rajesh Kumar Mallah
>            Priority: Major
>         Attachments: not-working.xml, working.xml
> The existing framework allows invoking  various services via XMLRPC or SOAP 
> as per their argument expectations. However only basic types are handled
> like String , Boolean , Int etc. If a service is expecting a GenericValue eg: 
> 'calculateProductPrice'   it is not possible to invoke it via SOAP or XMLRPC.
> The reason being SOAP or XMLRPC can support Map and that is the closest 
> it can provide in lieu of any custom Object that a Service might be expecting.
> A generic solution needs to be found so that the full potential of the 
> plethora of 
> exportable services can be utilized by external systems that looks for 
> integrating and 
> banking upon OfBiz via XMLRPC or SOAP.
