AW 2 and SOAP

Are there any connection methods built in for this at all? I found a post (since lost it) from Alex mentioning he may add in native support for it if he could find a simple way to manage it.

I was curious if this functionality was ever added or if anyone else had any examples of it being used.

I'm exptremely new to soap, but have been using widgets for a while. Not even sure I entirely understand what it is doing just yet. I just know that I need to connect to another app in my company here via a soap interface and on my side I'm using AW.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

There is no explicit support for SOAP in AW. However underneath the SOAP is just XML so if you have relatively static data scheme you can just do everything using AW.XML.Table and XPath expressions.

While true, even a fairly static SOAP request is somewhat messy to build. There are existing J/S toolkits to build those things so you don't have to do it by hand. It looks entirely possible at the moment that we are about to endeavor to combine the existing XML table constructs in AW with the tookit called JavaScript Soap Client - www.codeproject.com/Ajax/JavaScriptSOAPClient.asp

If this has some interest, we may need a bit of help on the table construct side.
