Extension for spyne so you can easy override services using delegate classes

Project Description

Extension for spyne so you can easy override services using delegate classes.

Example usage:

import logging

from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server
from wsgiref.validate import validator

from spyne import Application, Unicode
from spyne import rpc as original_spyne_rpc

from spyne.model.complex import ComplexModel
from spyne.protocol.soap.soap11 import Soap11
from spyne.server.wsgi import WsgiApplication

from spynedelegate.meta import DelegateBase, ExtensibleServiceBase, rpc

logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)

# models
class Chicken(ComplexModel):
    __namespace__ = "spyne.delegate.chicken"
    name = Unicode

class Cow(ComplexModel):
    __namespace__ = "spyne.delegate.cow"
    name = Unicode

# delegates
class ChickenDelegate(DelegateBase):
    @rpc(Chicken, _returns=Chicken.customize(max_occurs='unbounded'))
    def multiplyChickens(self, chicken):  # noqa
        return [chicken, chicken]

class CowDelegate(DelegateBase):
    def method_request_string(self):
        # you can access the context with self.ctx
        return self.ctx.method_request_string

    def gen_name(self, name):
        # and you can use self as well
        return "%s -> %s" % (self.method_request_string, name)

    @rpc(Cow, _returns=Unicode)
    def sayMooh(self, cow):  # noqa
        return self.gen_name(

    @rpc(Cow, _returns=Unicode)
    def noInheritance(self, cow):  # noqa
        # This method won't be inherited because we set the
        # collect_base_methods = False in the overridden delegate
        return self.gen_name(

class CowDelegateOverridden(CowDelegate):

    # With this property we don't expose inherited methods from the base
    # class
    collect_base_methods = False

    @rpc(Cow, _returns=Unicode)
    def sayMooh(self, cow):  # noqa
        # call the super and add a 'overridden' string
        result = super(CowDelegateOverridden, self).sayMooh(cow)
        return "%s overridden" % result

    @rpc(Unicode, _returns=Unicode)
    def generateName(self, name):
        # shows that we call a regular supermethod
        return super(CowDelegateOverridden, self).gen_name(name)

# inheritance
class FarmDelegate(ChickenDelegate, CowDelegateOverridden):

# services
class ChickenService(ExtensibleServiceBase):
    delegate = ChickenDelegate

class FarmService(ExtensibleServiceBase):
    delegate = FarmDelegate

    def thisStillWorks(ctx):  # noqa
        return "Old fashioned spyne"

farm_application = Application(

if __name__ == "__main__":
    wsgi_application = WsgiApplication(farm_application)
    wsgi_server = make_server(
        'localhost', 9876, validator(wsgi_application))'Starting server at %s:%s.' % ('localhost', 9876))'WSDL is at: /?wsdl')
