Subject: RE: Basic Questions
I have some more questions that have arose after more reading.
1)       A given 'service' can have 1 or more exposed soap functions
2)       What is the purpose of the SoapAction HTTP header parameter
from a practical standpoint?
3)       If my service is meant only to be used by a select 1 or 2
client applications is there a need for WSDLs?
4)       The Axis Developers guide refers to using ant, junit and other
utilities when developing a soap service.  Is that required? Do most of
you guys use that?
I know these are very general questions; but they will definetly help me
get a better overall understanding of SOAP and Axis.

Subject: Basic Questions
I just setup Axis on my linux box where it will be used as a Soap server
for 1 or 2 soap services I need to create.  Before I get into the
details of writing the service I want to get as much info and knowledge
as I can about SOAP/Axis etc, so my service performs as expected.
The first question that comes to mind is what are the options I have for
a C++ client on windows to use my SOAP service?  I don't want .NET
really since I need to be able to support older windows boxes.  I am
looking for a lower level program/library to build the soap messages. If
not I might just right my own specific to my soap service.
Any thoughts on that?
