I am unable to convert SOAP response to Array in php.

here is the code

 $response = $client->__doRequest($xmlRequest,$location,$action,1);

here is the SOAP response.

<soap:envelope xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:soap="">
<searchflightavailability33response xmlns="">
    &lt;Fareportal&gt;&lt;FpSearch_AirLowFaresRS&gt;&lt;CntKey&gt;1777f5a7-7824-46ce-a0f8-33d5e6e96816&lt;/CntKey&gt;&lt;Currency CurrencyCode="USD"/&gt;&lt;OriginDestinationOptions&gt;&lt;OutBoundOptions&gt;&lt;OutBoundOption segmentid="9W7008V21Feb14"&gt;&lt;FlightSegment etc....

i used the following ways to convert to Array,but i am getting empty output.

1.echo '<pre>';print_r($client__getLastResponse());
2.echo '<pre>';print_r($response->envelope->body->searchflightavailability33response);
3.echo '<pre>';print_r($client->SearchFlightAvailability33($response));

5.echo '<pre>';print_r($client->SearchFlightAvailability33($response));

please advice me.



finally i found the solution is

we can get body of the response from SOAP the following ways


$xml = new SimpleXMLElement($soapResponse);
foreach($xml->xpath('//soap:body') as $header) {
    $output = $header->registerXPathNamespace('default', '');    


$doc = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'utf-8');
    $doc->loadXML( $soapResponse );
    $XMLresults     = $doc->getElementsByTagName("SearchFlightAvailability33Response");
    $output = $XMLresults->item(0)->nodeValue;

$array = explode(' ', $string);

Here is the solution. :)

$url    = '';
$client = new SoapClient($url, array("soap_version" => SOAP_1_1,"trace" => 1));

$user_param = array (
  'WebProviderLoginId' => "test",
  'WebProviderPassword' => "test",
  'IsAgent' => false

$service_param = array (
  'objSecurity' => $user_param,
  "OutPut" => NULL,
  "ErrorMsg" => NULL


echo $client->__getLastRequest();


& the request was:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" xmlns:ns1="">

Thanks to this link. PHP SOAP Request not right

Upfront remark: In order to use the __getLastRequest() method successfully, you have to set the 'trace' option to true on client construction:

$client = new SoapClient('wsdldoc.asmx?WSDL', array('trace' => TRUE));

This way, your request will still be sent (and therefore still fail), but you can inspect the sent xml afterwards by calling $client->__getLastRequest().

Main answer:

To get access to the generated XML before/without sending the request, you'd need to subclass the SoapClient in order to override the __doRequest() method:

class SoapClientDebug extends SoapClient
  public function __doRequest($request, $location, $action, $version, $one_way = 0) {
      // Add code to inspect/dissect/debug/adjust the XML given in $request here

      // Uncomment the following line, if you actually want to do the request
      // return parent::__doRequest($request, $location, $action, $version, $one_way);

You'd then use this extended class instead of the original SoapClient while debugging your problem.
