nusoap - EOF reached before processing content-length bytes

NuSoap experts,

I'm moving my website, powered by PHP, from a Linux server to a Windows Server 2008 server. My website uses nusoap for XML web services. One of my scripts which run perfectly on the linux server, is failing on the windows server. On the windows server, the nusoap is failing to receive all data. For example, if 29,778 is expected from the SOAP server, only 6,729 bytes are being received by the client on the windows server before EOF. The feof() function call in nusoap getResponse() (around line number 2656) is detecting EOF prematurely before reading all the data. If I add a "usleep(250000)" after each "fread()" in nusoap.php getResponse() as shown below, all data is received as expected. I've added some debugging and determined that the feof() which is returning true is the feof in the while loop on line 2655 of nusoap.php in getResponse().


The following is the debug info for nusoap 0.7.2 (actually is google's nusoap for php5 - 0.9). Note the content-length and the length of data actually read on the socket before EOF.

Does anyone know the fix for this issue? I could leave the usleep in place, I'm just afraid that this is just a hack and not a valid fix.

Thanks,

I think the problem is in feof() which is not properly ported to Windows platform.
Try the latest version of PHP and if the problem is still there, report bugs at http://bugs.php.net
Please note, that you'll have to write a _SIMPLE_ sample demonstrating the problem. I don't think nusoap is acceptable, but you can easily extract nusoap http transport class and demonistrate its work against any public http server.

Thanks for the response Dmitri. I am experiencing this problem with nusoap-for-php5 and PHP 5.2.11.

Due to this problem I've already started porting my scripts from nusoap to PHP 5 SOAP. I am now experiencing another differnt issue for which I've raised a PHP bug report: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=50298.

We experienced exactly the same problem with PHP 5.2.11. The usleep() call did not helpded. We moved to PHP 5.2.17 and it solved the problem (even with an old nusoap library version). The problem was definitively in PHP fread() function.
