    Workaround

    Hi,

    I thought I would post my temporary workaround. It seems to me that the problem is with the PHP5 soap client. It doesn't seem to handle inheritance too well, at least not in this case. The abstract class "path" is not supposed to be referenced directly, it is used in types.xsd to refer to whichever path you are using be it FieldURI, IndexedFieldURI or ExtendedFieldURI. Just for UpdateItem alone, I created an alternate types.xsd and change line 689 from path to FieldURI or IndexedFieldURI depending on which one I needed to use.

    This is obviously a hack that could cause problems down the road, but it allows me to finally update items for now. If anyone has more understanding about PHP5 soap and inheritance I would appreciate your thoughts or experiences.

    No longer getting the Path error but still failing schema validation

    I formed this XML, but still have a schema error. It might be something simple, but it's not obvious to me. I haven't looked at your xsd work-around.


    // Updating Calendar Subjects
    $UpdateItem->ConflictResolution = "AutoResolve";
    $UpdateItem->MessageDisposition = "SaveOnly";
    $UpdateItem->ItemChanges->ItemChange->ItemId->Id = $itemids[1];
    $UpdateItem->ItemChanges->ItemChange->ItemId->ChangeKey = $changekey[1];

    $UpdateItem->ItemChanges->ItemChange->Updates->SetItemField->Path['FieldURI'] = "item:Subject";
    $UpdateItem->ItemChanges->ItemChange->Updates->SetItemField->Path['type'] = "PathToUnindexedFieldType";
    $UpdateItem->ItemChanges->ItemChange->Updates->SetItemField->CalendarItem->Subject = "Your New Subject";

    print_r($UpdateItem);
    $result = $client->UpdateItem($UpdateItem);


    Fatal error: Uncaught SoapFault exception: [Client] The request failed schema validation.

    After fighting with this solution: http://www.howtoforge.com/talking-soap-with-exchange

    and getting it to work ( it was a cURL lib problem ).

    I found all this patching of other classes/lib's etc hard to figure out when there is a problem. Otherwise its works great!

    anyways this is pure no extra classes or SOAP ( so the wsdl problems doesn't come into play at all ) you don't need to download any files.

    This code should drop a new message in your inbox. I have only tested on my server but I find this way its quicker to figure out what the problem is.

    The only down side is you have to generate your own XML, sometimes i find it easier ;)

    One point is have have to say that figuring out NTLM would have taken me a while but thanks to Manuel Lemos @ http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/package/1888.html i was able to use this NTLM class to do the hard work for me.

    Code:
    <?php
    define("SASL_NTLM_STATE_START",             0);
    define("SASL_NTLM_STATE_IDENTIFY_DOMAIN",   1);
    define("SASL_NTLM_STATE_RESPOND_CHALLENGE", 2);
    define("SASL_NTLM_STATE_DONE",              3);
    
    
    
    $NTLM = new ntlm_sasl_client_class;
    echo "<PRE>";
    
    $realm='<IP ADDRESS OF EXCHANGE>';
    $workstation='';
    $login='<LOGIN NAME>';
    $password='<PASSWORD>';
    $send_email_to = "test@user.com";
    
    $message=base64_encode(($NTLM->TypeMsg1($realm,$workstation)));
    
    # Get the 1st NTLM message from the server
    $fp = fsockopen("ssl://" . $realm, 443, $errno, $errstr, 30);
    $httpsend  = "GET /EWS/Exchange.asmx HTTP/1.1\r\n";
    $httpsend .= "Host: " . $realm . "\r\n";

    $httpsend .= "Authorization: NTLM " . $message . "\r\n\r\n";
    
    fwrite($fp, $httpsend);
    $data = "";
    while (strpos($data,"\r\n\r\n") == 0) { $data .= fgets($fp, 128); }
    
    
    
    # Get NTLM string
    $ntlm = trim(substr($data,strpos($data,"WWW-Authenticate: NTLM ")+22,strpos($data,"\r\n",strpos($data,"WWW-Authenticate: NTLM"))-strpos($data,"WWW-Authenticate: NTLM")-22    ));
    
    
    $ntlm_response=$NTLM->NTLMResponse(substr(base64_decode($ntlm),24,8),$password);

    My Changes

    Hopefully this will help someone...

    I use Intermedia Managed Exchange. I was Having trouble with the WSDL File caching all the time. Add this line to your code to disable WSDL Caching -

    ini_set("soap.wsdl_cache_enabled", "0");

    In the WSDL file I removed the last line - "</wsdl:definitions>" and then pasted Eric's code as per his great tutorial -
    "<wsdl:service name="ExchangeServices">
    <wsdl:port name="ExchangeServicePort" binding="tns:ExchangeServiceBinding">
    <soap:address location="https://exchange.example.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx"/>
    </wsdl:port>
    </wsdl:service>
    </wsdl:definitions>"

    Dont forget to change the SOAP:ADDRESS LOCATION to https://<yourexchangeOWAdomain>/EWS/Exchange.asmx

    Any Update on UpdateItem

    Greetings,

    I've tried a whole bunch of things wrt UpdateItem, but no success like I see here.

    jmclen what did you change the types.xsd file line 689 to? I've tried a few variations and can not make it work.

    Thanks!

    UPDATE: jmclen's solution worked for me, I had something caching which was throwing me off, just replacing the t:path with t:FieldURI is what I needed.

    When i tried to filter get folder details it throws following error;

    error is on the line marked with bold and blue color.

    This is very urgent as i am working towards a dedline for a customer. any help would be appriciated.

    Thanks for your help in advance. :)
    This is my code.


    $FindFolder->Traversal = 'Shallow';
    $FindFolder->FolderShape->BaseShape = 'AllProperties';
    $FindFolder->Traversal->ParentFolderIds->DistinguishedFolderId->Id = 'root';

    $result = $client->FindFolder($FindFolder);
    $folders = $result->ResponseMessages->FindFolderResponseMessage->RootFolder->Folders->Folder;
    foreach ($folders as $folder)
    {
    if ('Top of Information Store' == $folder->DisplayName)
    {
    $tois_folder = $folder;
    }

    $FindItem->CalendarView->StartDate     $s_start;
    $FindItem->CalendarView->EndDate     $s_ende;
    $result $client->FindItem($FindItem);
    $calendaritems $result->ResponseMessages->FindItemResponseMessage->RootFolder->Items->CalendarItem;
    if(
    $debug) { print_r($calendaritems); }

    Hi,

    sorry for pulling out this old thread, but I have a problem with passing the body attributes for CreateItem: I have successfully made a connection to the Exchange-server and was able to create an appointment (with the code from the tutorial). But there is the problem: I wrote a simple test script for this and after the test I put this into a class. In the testscript everything was fine and working, but in the class where I added a addAppointment()-function, I'm getting an error at this line:
    PHP:
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Body[_] = $text;
    Error: Use of undefined constant _ - assumed '_'.
    This is the function:
    PHP:
    public function addAppointment$path$title$text$start$end,
        
    $allday false$busystatus 'Free'$location ''$category '' )
      {
        
    // get ids for directory
        
    $ids $this->getFolderIDsByPath($path);// <simple function for getting id/changekey for given path, not interesting here

        
    if ( $ids )
        {
          
          
    $CreateItem->SavedItemFolderId->FolderId->Id $ids['Id'];
          
    $CreateItem->SavedItemFolderId->FolderId->ChangeKey $ids['ChangeKey'];
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem = array();
          
    $CreateItem->SendMeetingInvitations "SendToNone";

          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Subject $title;
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Start $start# ISO date format. Z denotes UTC time
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->End $end;
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Body[_] = $text// < error here
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Body['BodyType']="Text";
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->IsAllDayEvent $allday;
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->LegacyFreeBusyStatus $busystatus;
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Location $location;
          
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Categories->String $category;
          
    $result $this->client->CreateItem($CreateItem); // < $this->client holds SOAP-client object
          
    print_r($result);
          if ( 
    $result->ResponseMessages->CreateItemResponseMessage->ResponseClass == 'Success' )
          {
            
    // return id/changekey for saving somewhere to be able to edit the appointment
            
    return array(
              
    'Id' =>  $result->ResponseMessages->CreateItemResponseMessage->Items->CalendarItem->ItemId->Id,
              
    'ChangeKey' => $result->ResponseMessages->CreateItemResponseMessage->Items->CalendarItem->ItemId->ChangeKey,
            );
          }
          return 
    null;
        }
      }
    Can somebody tell me whats wrong? Why is this working in the one script and not in the other? Both are on the same server (Ubuntu 9.04, Apache 2.2.11, PHP 5.2.6). How can I get this working? I'm looking at this all the day but I couldn't figure it out.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    EDIT:
    OK, found something: if I change
    PHP:
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Body[_] = $text;
    to
    PHP:
    $CreateItem->Items->CalendarItem[0]->Body[] = $text;
    it works and the appointment appears in the calendar, but the body is not saved :(.

    best regards

    marv
    hope my english is not to bad :)
