    Experience with SOAP?

    I'm thinking about using SOAP for my application, but therefore I need a SOAP processor. Anybody here that has successfully used SOAP messaging in their application?

    With full SOAP headers etc? What a waste of expensive bandwidth! :-)

    I'm using sgmllib.py to parse simple XML-like dataformat. Data looks like this:
    <img time='1156230837' id='79/94/000005215' sender='Aapo' title='Stikkaa vodaa'></img>
    And my parser returns a dictionary, where keys are tag names and values lists of dictionaries like this:
    {'img': [[1156230837, {u'title': u'Stikkaa vodaa', u'sender': u'Aapo', u'id': u'79/94/000005215', u'time': u'1156230837'}], 
             [1156237022, {u'title': u'Hj l\xe4hettipy\xf6r\xe4', u'sender': u'Teemu', u'id': u'eb/cc/000005216', u'time': u'1156237022'}],
    {'msg': [[...
    Above is easy to use in Pys60 program later.

    If somebody is interested in this, I can post those few lines of Python code to this forum.

    Re: Experience with SOAP?

    Ok, here it goes. If copypaste to your editor does not work, try this temporary link:
    Just running it ("/path/to/python2.2 PlokParser.py") should show some results. If this does not work and you need more instructions how to test PlokParser, please reply to this thread. NOTE: sgmllib.py and markupbase.py are needed, but usually they are found by python if python installation is successful.

    Suggestions and improvements are appreciated.
