Bug #41356 Cannot retrieve global from a class in a soap server
Submitted: 2007-05-10 17:18 UTC Modified: 2007-05-10 17:32 UTC

For our application we use a $db which represents the database connection object.

In the class, instead of creating a new object every time, we do : global $db, which retrieves the database connection from outside the class.

That works good! 

However, when we call that class from a soap server, for some reason it does not get the $db variable (its blank)...

Reproduce code:
// Code
$db = new MySQL();

// class

class X extends A
        public function __construct($params)
		global $db;
		$this->db = $db;

Expected result:
that the global $db; in the constructor contains the db connection

Actual result:
blank variable

using $GLOBALS instead of global seems to fix the problem
