Has anyone had any luck using the WSF in the S60 3rd edition SDK? I'm getting very confused and frustrated with all the information and misinformation that I'm getting. Is there a combination of tools and SDK's where there is possible to use WSF in some rational way? And by this I don't mean writing the whole darn thing myself.
A Web Services Description Language (WSDL) to C++ wizard is available to create stub code for Web services clients designed for S60 3rd Edition.
Sounds great! Where exactly is the wizard? Included in the SDK? Integrated in the IDE? SDK help does not contain any information about it. I've also browsed around the SDK directories until I got dizzy. No such luck. Carbide.vs or Carbide.C++ does not either contain anything even close to a WSDL to C++ wizard.

Developers using Visual Studio also benefit from Carbide.vs, which provides support for the Symbian OS build process and a WSDL converter.
I've tried using Carbide.vs and Visual Studio .NET 2003 cause it should support WebServices usage in some manner. Though I'm not sure that "WSDL converter" is. Well, I tried creating a simple 3rd edition project and then add a web refecence to it. Fine. Visual Studio generated bunch of ATL code for me which is useless in S60 environment thanks to many good and bad historical reasons.
So, I'm asking if anyone knows any sane way of using WSF? Which tools and which SDK's? I've already spent like days on the whole thing.
In the past I've used gSOAP for accessing WebServices with 2nd edition SDK's. Do I have to get back to that or continue trying to use WSF?
How does all this compare to using WebServices in regular (or compact) .NET framework? In any case developing takes at least 10 times more time.
