Summary0001648: Missing catch of warnings - especially on online-vat-id-check
DescriptionToday we got a call by a shop-owner: customers wrote him that the order process does not work any longer. One customer put this error messages in his email:
Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient( [soapclient.soapclient]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in /htdocs/ on line 137

Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient() [soapclient.soapclient]: I/O warning : failed to load external entity "" in /htdocs/ on line 137

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /htdocs/ in /htdocs/ on line 817

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /htdocs/ in /htdocs/ on line 818

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /htdocs/ in /htdocs/ on line 819

So no orders could be made if a customer used his VAT ID and company name.
The warning is not catched so we should have a special handling vor warnings cause oxshopcontrol::_runonce() sets the error-handling to E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE if the server config logs errors.

So I suggest to implement something like this into the whole exception handling stuff:

set_error_handler("oxWarningHandler", E_WARNING);

function oxWarningHandler($errno, $errstr) {
    // do something sensefull ...
        // and put it to EXCEPTION.log

Looks like the service over this wsdl does not work any more. Need to investigate ASAP - which link should be used for this service.
@Developers: please write some temporary workaround here if possible (i.e. disabling VAT ID check in source code), to allow order processing.

given url does not work at the moment, so i made a module (attached), which disables soap call and marks Vat ID as valid. On urgent cases this may be helpful.

To enable it add this to modules config:

oxonlinevatidcheck => oxmodonlinevatidcheck

URL does work now again ... - but as I said: we do need a proper handling for warnings here so that they do not hinder order processing

we're working on that. Bad thing is that SOAP connection exception cant be cought by standard try/catch block.

in case you need ASAP fix just make a module for oxonlinevatidcheck class:

class module extends module_parent
     * Catches soap warning which is usually thrown due to setvice problems.
     * Return true and allows to continue process
     * @param int $iErrNo error type number
     * @param string $sErrStr error message
     * @param string $sErrFile error file
     * @param int $iErrLine error line
     * @return bool
    public function catchWarning( $iErrNo, $sErrStr, $sErrFile, $iErrLine )
        // message to write to exception log
        $sLogMessage = "Warning: $sErrStr in $sErrFile on line $iErrLine";

        // fetching exception log file name
        $oEx = new oxException();
        $sLogFileName = $oEx->getLogFileName();

        // logs error message
        return oxUtils::getInstance()->writeToLog( $sLogMessage, $sLogFileName );

     * Checks online if USt.ID number is valid.
     * Returns true on success. On error sets error value.
     * @param object $oCheckVat vat object
     * @return bool
    protected function _checkOnline( $oCheckVat )
        // setting local error handler to catch possible soap errors
        set_error_handler( array( $this, 'catchWarning' ), E_WARNING );

        $blReturn = parent::_checkOnline( $oCheckVat );

        // restoring previous error handler

        return $blReturn;
