  • 1. Making and Breaking Web Services (with Ruby) Chris Wanstrath Err Free http://errfree.com
  • 2. ttp://farm1.static.flickr.com/138/320699460_b8e7c1e7e6_o.jpg
  • 3. SOAP • Simple Object Access Protocol? • Lies. • Service Oriented Architecture Protocol • wtf.
  • 4. Newsletters!
  • 5. “Outbound” • Slow response time • Duplication of data • Hard to debug • require ‘soap/wsdlDriver’
  • 6. Ruby SOAP Library: Your Friend • Creates methods on the fly • Seems to work pretty well • Transparently converts Ruby types to SOAP definitions
  • 7. Ruby SOAP Library: Your Enemy • Hard to debug (dump req/res to file) • No one has ever used it • There are not any alternatives • The code is a jungle
  • 8. Why use SOAP? • One reason: legacy.
  • 9. Wrapping SOAP def update_user(email, subs = [], unsubs = []) client.updateUser(brand, email, email, demo, subs, unsubs) end
  • 10. Wrapping SOAP def update_user(email, subs = [], unsubs = []) client.updateUser(brand, email, email, demo, subs, unsubs) end def get_user(email) client.getUser(email, brand) end
  • 11. Wrapping SOAP def update_user(email, subs = [], unsubs = []) client.updateUser(brand, email, email, demo, subs, unsubs) end def get_user(email) client.getUser(email, brand) end
  • 12. Wrapping SOAP def update_user(email, subs = [], unsubs = []) client.updateUser(brand, email, email, demo, subs, unsubs) end def get_user(email) client.getUser(email, brand) end
  • 13. Testing SOAP • Use mocks • Mocha: http://mocha.rubyforge.org
  • 14. Testing SOAP def test_get_user_should_hit_client email = 'chrisw@nstrath.com' Outbound.client.expects(:getUser).with(email, Outbound.brand) Outbound.get_user(email) end
  • 15. Testing SOAP soap_methods = { :getUser => true, :updateUser => true } Outbound.stubs(:client).returns(mock('SOAP Service', soap_methods))
  • 16. Running a SOAP Server in Ruby
  • 17. Just Kidding
  • 18. Microformats! • Your website is your API • Plant classes in HTML • Tell parsers what information is important • http://microformats.org
  • 19. hReview
  • 20. hReview <div id="review_16873" class="hreview"> <h5 class="item"><span class="fn">Beringer California Collection White Merlot 20 <abbr class="dtreviewed" title="20070420">(1 day ago)</abbr> <span class="reviewer vcard"> <img class="photo" src="/assets/avatars/c19d1b2080f73765d420b461d3133ffa.jpg" <a class="url fn" href="/people/garyvaynerchuk">garyvaynerchuk</a> </span> <abbr class="rating" title="50.0">50.0<em>/100</em></abbr> <blockquote class="description">Had this in an industry event the other day, man <p class="tags">Tasting Tags: <a href="/tags/pink" rel="tag" class="rel-tag" title="view all wines with this t <a href="/tags/sugar" rel="tag" class="rel-tag" title="view all wines with this </p> </div>
  • 21. hReview <div id="review_16873" class="hreview"> <h5 class="item"><span class="fn">Beringer California Collection White Merlot 20 <abbr class="dtreviewed" title="20070420">(1 day ago)</abbr> <span class="reviewer vcard"> <img class="photo" src="/assets/avatars/c19d1b2080f73765d420b461d3133ffa.jpg" <a class="url fn" href="/people/garyvaynerchuk">garyvaynerchuk</a> </span> <abbr class="rating" title="50.0">50.0<em>/100</em></abbr> <blockquote class="description">Had this in an industry event the other day, man <p class="tags">Tasting Tags: <a href="/tags/pink" rel="tag" class="rel-tag" title="view all wines with this t <a href="/tags/sugar" rel="tag" class="rel-tag" title="view all wines with this </p> </div>
  • 22. mofo $ sudo gem install mofo Successfully installed mofo-0.2.2 $ irb -rubygems >> require 'mofo/hreview' => true >> review = HReview.find :first => 'http://corkd.com/wine/view/21670' => #<HReview:0x1598d04 ...> >> review.properties => ["description", "item", "dtreviewed", "tags", "rating", "reviewer"] >> review.rating => 50.0 >> review.item.fn => "Beringer California Collection White Merlot 2005" >> review.reviewer.fn => "garyvaynerchuk"
  • 23. mofo/hreview.rb class HReview < Microformat one :version, :summary, :type, :dtreviewed, :rating, :description one :reviewer => HCard one :item! do one :fn end end
  • 24. microformat.rb def collector collector = Hash.new([]) def collector.method_missing(method, *classes) super unless %w(one many).include? method.to_s self[method] += Microformat.send(:break_out_hashes, classes) end collector end
  • 25. mofo supports... • xoxo • hCard • geo • hCalendar • adr • hReview • xfn • hEntry • hResume
  • 26. What else can they do?
  • 27. Operator
  • 28. Operator
  • 29. Okay.
  • 30. Hpricot ( by _why )
  • 31. Hpricot $ irb -rubygems -r'open-uri' >> require 'hpricot' => true >> page = Hpricot open('http://google.com') => #<Hpricot::Doc ...> >> page.search(:a).size => 20 >> page.at(:a) => {elem <a href="/url?sa=p&pref=ig&pval=3 &q=http://www.google.com/ig%3Fhl%3Den&usg= AFrqEzfPu3dYlSVsfjI7gUHePgEkcx_VXg"> "Personalize this page" </a>}
  • 32. Hpricot Can use XPATH, CSS selectors, whatever, to search
  • 33. Hpricot >> page = Hpricot(open('http://brainspl.at')) => #<Hpricot::Doc ...> >> page.search('.post').size => 10
  • 34. Hpricot >> corkd = 'http://corkd.com/wine/view/21670' => 'http://corkd.com/wine/view/21670' >> page = Hpricot(open(corkd)) => #<Hpricot::Doc ...> >> page.search('.hreview').size => 4
  • 35. Hpricot/:mofo >> page.at('.hreview').at('.item').at('.fn').inner_text => "Beringer California Collection White Merlot 2005" >> review.item.fn => "Beringer California Collection White Merlot 2005"
  • 36. Oh, you can use Hpricot for XML, too. <Export> <Product> <SKU>403276</SKU> <ItemName>Trivet</ItemName> <CollectionNo>0</CollectionNo> <Pages>0</Pages> </Product> </Export>
  • 37. Oh, you can use Hpricot for XML, too. fields = %w(SKU ItemName CollectionNo Pages) doc = Hpricot(open("my.xml")) (doc/:product).each do |xml_product| attributes = fields.inject({}) do |hash, field| hash.merge(field => xml_product.at(field).innerHTML) end Product.create(attributes) end ( also there’s Hpricot::XML() )
  • 38. But who uses XML?
  • 39. Cheat! http://cheat.errtheblog.com (insert short, live demo here)
