SharePoint GetListItems and Complex Parameters

In my previous article I showed how to connect to SharePoint web services using SOAP::Lite and how to easily pull a list of all collections on the site. Now we’ll dive a little bit deeper and look at how we can fetch items out of a list. For simple queries this is pretty easy but can become complicated if you need to include a lot of parameters. A lot of tutorials I’ve seen on this topic revert to sending raw XML as the parameter to get around the complexities of doing it in code.

After scouring the Internet for information and doing my own painstakingly line-by-line debugging of the SOAP transport I finally got it all to work and understand the various steps required (or at least I think I do). Note: I only have experience with my organization’s SharePoint 2010 server and I can’t guarantee that the following will work with other configurations.

I’ll start by showing a full example of how to connect to the SharePoint web service and then I’ll walk through the code with you to explain how and why things are working. Read more…
