      Thanks for the hint! Starting with what you said, I managed to get the
      server test working. From the SOAP::Lite doc:

      You may use both "dispatch_to()" and "dispatch_with()" syntax and
      "dispatch_with()" has more priority, so first checked URI, then
      SOAPAction and only then will be checked "dis-

      I wasn't setting a uri in the client, because when I did it prevented
      Axis from working, as Axis tried to use a class based on the uri, and I
      don't want the class and uri to match exactly. Temporarily ignoring
      that issue, I set a uri on the client, set dispatch_with to pair the uri
      with ws::handlers, and voila my test server works. Of course my Axis
      server doesn't work any more :)

      Now I just have to figure out the equivalent of dispatch_with for Axis.

      Thanks again!
