If you set up something that can do client/server testing that would be great.
I have .NET on my machine, and I would run any and all tests in a suite
if we had a set of services to deploy on .NET.

I think this would be great - just like the httpunit tests, which
we should run on 1.0 before we ship it.

Subject: .net testing

Just saw the comments on .NET testing on the IRC chat...I'm in the UK and
only get net access when sitting in the 802.11 footprint of friends' houses.

Ant 1.5 has a <wsdltodotnet> equivalent of <wsdl2java>; takes a wsdl file
and generates a C# or VB equivalent, with dependendency checking. It needs
wsdl.exe on the path; ant's own build script uses <available> to look for it
before running the appropriate unit test.

Assuming wsdl.exe returns an error code if it cant convert a wsdl, it would
be easy to add new tests (under test/dotnet) to take the WSDL generated by
various things and generate C# code; this would verify that wsdl.exe could
handle it.

To actually test interop takes more work; someone needs to write the client
side code to make sensible calls. That could be a secondary exercise.

None of the gump systems have wsdl.exe on their path, so the Gump wouldnt
test this stuff. I have a box with .NET 1.0, and another with .NET 1.1
( "everett") to hand. I dunno if I can file bugreps on the axis
account related to behaviour with an NDA covered beta release -I can of
course file them on the MS web site.

I'll see what I can knock up with wsdl importing tests in the next week or
