It seems that instead of string, new version of PHP (5.2.9) has 

<key xsi:type="xsd:int">884385070380</key>

as opposed to for old version of PHP (5.2.2) returning 

<key xsi:type="xsd:string">884385070380</key>

for arrays in SOAP services.

This causes the client to throw a soap fault error with "SOAP-ERROR: 
Encoding: Can't decode apache map, only Strings or Longs are allowd 
as keys".

Is there any additional information that I can provide to perhaps 
speed up the process to resolve this ticket?

I have confirmed that this issue is in 5.3.0 and 5.2.10.

Thank you for your bug report.

Could you please supply us with a piece of WSDL describing the array? Also, which client are you using which gives this error?

If I understand correctly, the problem occurs with the soapenc:array type and the Axis 1 SOAP library.

The sample WSDL:

I am getting this error with another php script i run on a different

with php version ranging from 5.2.2 to

Again, the error is:

Using the __getLastResponse() function I received following xml:

I have tested this with 5.2.11 and the issue is there as well.  Please 
let me know if I can provide any additional information that would help 
resolve this issue.

I cannot upgrade my system and use cool new features in PHP 5.3 as this 
is blocking a major functionality in the application.

The problem persists with php 5.3.1 as well.

Just encountered the same problem. It's a shame this not fixed till now. Don't even know - what should I do with it now.

What the hell is wrong with this project, four years and it is not fixed?

I've made some tests with recent PHP versions (5.6.11 and
7.0.0beta1). On architectures where a PHP integer is 64bit, the
argument has type xsd:int in the request envelope. This is clearly
wrong, as xsd:int is a 32bit integer; it should be xsd:long. Where
a PHP integer is 32bit, the argument has type xsd:float, what is
not necessarly wrong per se. So much about the client.

The server obviously can't deal with xsd:float here. On 5.6.11 Win
x86, the error that has been reported is thrown; on 7.0.0beta1 Win
x86 PHP crashes.

When the argument is encoded as xsd:int, we see an overflow
(3916774700) (PHP 7.0.0beta1 on Win x64 and PHP 5.6.11 on Linux
x64), whereby PHP 5.6.11 additionally raises "Function
("getAssetPathInfo") is not a valid method for this service)".
Only PHP 7 on Linux x64 yields the "expected" result.

Related to bug #48717.
