  -Yes, but with a number of 'gotchas'. You need to install a patch to the MS SOAP package. One of the well-known interoperability problems between Apache 2.0 and MS Soap is that MS clients do not send type information with each parameter, and the Apache soap server will reject such requests. <BR>Microsoft now have a useful resource page for interoperability (including articles specifically discussing integration with Apache SOAP): <A HREF="http://www.msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnsrvspec/html/globalxmlwebsrvinterop.asp?frame=true">http://www.msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnsrvspec/html/globalxmlwebsrvinterop.asp?frame=true</a>. <BR>James Snell has provided a patch adding the typing. It can be found at SOAP-WRC web site (<A HREF="http://www.soap-wrc.com/apache_ms_soap_interop.zip">http://www.soap-wrc.com/apache_ms_soap_interop.zip</a>). <BR>Both Apache and Microsoft are working hard to ensure interoperability between their SOAP implementations (in case you don't believe us, have a look here: <A HREF="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=soap-user&m=98505313219298&w=2">http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=soap-user&m=98505313219298&w=2</a>).<p>
