Phalcon Http client body response problem

I want to consume a webservice in my phalcon application then I seen the Phalcon's curl http client.

I use it like this :

        $provider = CRequest::getProvider();

        $provider->setBaseUri('http://example.com/api/');

        $provider->header->set('Accept', 'application/xml');

        $response = $provider->post('getUsers', [
            'myparams'  => 'paramsValue',
            ...
        ]);

        echo $response->body;

But I have a problem when I'm using $response->body. This will returns me the header and the body at the same time and I can't get the value of my XML.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:14:34 GMT
Content-Type: application/xml
Content-Length: 25
Connection: keep-alive
Status: 200 OK

<id>62</id>

How can I do to get just the XML ?

Why don't you use just curl? You can then have full control over entire API calls.

Perhaps somebody here could help you with that Incubator stuff, I always use curl for heavy stuff / production, and for testing even raw php.

You're welcome. Sometimes plain & simple thing is best option for the task :)

For instance, just today I needed quick debug of the entire stack (complex back-end system) which I developed years ago using PHP with cURL. And there you go.

Folks working with OSB (Java) have never saw their raw API request like this :D
