      You can also code the thing up in C# without using WSDL. Here's a
      sort of template to get you started. It is a GarciaClient class
      which you can ask for a garciaProxy object. You populate the
      garciaProxy object with the fields you want and tell the
      GarciaClient to send it off to the "methodGarcia" SOAP method on the
      perl server.

      I haven't tested this particular code very far, though it does seem
      to run ok. Hope this helps.
