In case some of you haven't read the Delphi 2009 readme.htm yet (also in the Release Notes), it mentions the following:
SOAP Server Notes
The Win32/native SOAP server is currently on the Deprecated list and is
classified as "Other Consideration: Need alternative." If you want a
document/literal server, you should build your SOAP server using Delphi
for .NET (RAD Studio), which supports the SOAP specifications that are
supported by the .NET framework.
Although I can understand that (a bit) for the SOAP server side, I would really want some extended Win32 SOAP support for clients, specifically for SOAP v1.2, MTOM (Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism) and in the end also interoperability for WCF servers.
I've opened a QC feature request report, and invite everyone who also cares about Win32 SOAP (client) support to vote for this report.
Thanks in advance!
