Have gotten back to working on the SOAP API (using SOAP::Lite) but am in
Perl module hell. Actually, its sort of a rookie problem. In the
bugzilla directory I've created a .cgi file which sort of looks like

        #!/usr/bin/perl -w
        use strict;
        use lib qw(.);
        use SOAP::Transport::HTTP;
        use Bugzilla::DB;
        use Bugzilla::Demo;
          -> dispatch_to('Demo')
          -> handle;

And in the Bugzilla directory I stuck a .pm file that looks like this:

        use strict;
        package Demo;
        use Bugzilla;
        use Bugzilla::Constants;
        use Bugzilla::DB;
        use Bug;
        sub hi {
                return new Bug(1,1);
                #return "hello, world ";
        sub bye {
          return "goodbye, cruel world";
        sub languages {
          return ("Perl", "C", "sh");

The error message coming back in SOAP to the JavaScript SOAP API in
Mozilla (which is really nice, since in this case I don't have to tail
error_log) is: "Undefined subroutine &main::SendSQL called at
line 153".

OK, I know the new Bug() object isn't the way to do this, but I just
want to get the function name resolutions to work reasonably well. I get
a returned "hello world" fine. I can actually call the Bugzilla->login
sub and get the hash (?) back in my browser through the SOAP APIs. But
what am I doing wrong that is causing SendSQL not to resolve. Is it
because it has been depricated? I'm sure the problem has to do with the
way I am including things rather than with the SOAP module. Well, maybe.
