Paypal Plugin

I'm trying to install the Paypal Plugin from following the
instructions at

However on step 2 when I run:

./bin/wsdl2ruby.rb --wsdl --type client --force

I get the following error:

FATAL -- app: Detected an exception. Stopping ... undefined method
`elementformdefault' for #<WSDL::XMLSchema::ComplexContent:0x8609f4>

In the PayPalSvc.wsdl the schema tag has the attribute
elementFormDefault="qualified" which is the only elementformdefault
attribute throughout the file.

Is this something new that PayPal added that is just not supported by
soap4r? I am a soap newbie, so I don't relish the thought of digging
into the library to try to fix the problem.

I don’t have a solution to this problem, which I encountered myself w while back. It even got special mention in my e-commerce book as being particularly broken. So, if you find a fix, please let me know. :slight_smile:

Hm, this one worked for me:

$ wsdl2ruby --wsdl
--type client

ignored attr: {}abstract

ignored element: {}maxInclusive of

Well I did finally get it working... The problem was that I had
downloaded the stable version of soap4r and you actually need the
nightly build. However I ran into some other problems after that and
basically decided to just go with Active Merchant. My client is
possible looking at an alternative Gateway anyway, so AM is a better
