RE: [soaplite] how to
- Hi Colin,
I gave up using Soap::Lite instead I used a mixture of LWP and MIME tools
for perl to simply post the formulated xml request to the server. I found
the documentation for Soap::Lite after 2 weeks very abstract, with no real
examples on the net.

I will say that I did have SOAP operating on some mod-perl enabled
servers, but it was decided (due to in-house security contraints) that
we could not use SOAP. Don't ask. Trust me on this one.
So, it was dropped, and I implemented some custom software to jump
through the required security hoops. However, the time has come where
we can start to look at SOAP again. Something fundamental has
obviously changed in the last few years with respect to the perl SOAP
implementation, since I didn't have any trouble at all getting it to
work the first time.
