Hi, Andrew:
    Right, the SOAP messages should not be affected by using any kind of
tool, and when SOAP messages reaches the destination, people have to find a
way to parse it and transfor them to the format that current understood by
the whole organization - this'll involves different technologies to adapt,
surely XML by itself has a kind of spirit - and I guess the reason that SOAP
comes out is because we can not do anything using pure XML as of now, just
the same as we can not do everything using Java - even the spirit of Java is
conding once, running everywhere - it still involves different VM
technologies, so the same applies to XML, personally I do not believe the
spirit of XML is still the same as it gave out orginally, and it'll keep
changing as the new technologies and ideas come out, so as of a worker, I
just try to find out a nice tool for both CORBA and COM, and I do think
there's some one want to write SOAP messages Listener in COBOL - even if
it's possible, cheers.
