about it a bit more, I'm now fairly sure I came across this in "Programming
Web Services with Perl" by Ray & Kulchenko, rather than the SOAP::Lite
There hasn't been a new SOAP::Lite release since April last year, and I
think Perl 5.7.3 was the current distribution back then...
In fact, the lack of patches, bug fixes and new releases is something
thats starting to seriously worry me.
There isn't any (workable) alternative to SOAP::Lite using Perl and its
lacking alot of features (e.g. literal document encoding, proper MIME &
DIME support, "proper" WSDL deployment support) by default, and I know
people who are starting to have interoperability issues with AXIS (which
I guess has to be taken as the reference implementation for SOAP these
A year is a heck of a long time without a new distribution for something
thats developing as fast as SOAP and web services. Ho hum...
