ok, I'm not by any means a delphi programmer but I'm investigating for someone who is, so links would be good...

Is it possible to consume web services using delphi 5?
are there any wrapper components out there to enable this?
where do I look?

thanx for your help,

Web services in Delphi 5 should be possible but I know Delphi 7 has a lot better support for them. D5 does offer the ability to create a web service but I did not detect to import a WSDL file into D5. D7 can easily import them.
Since I use D7 I don't need any 3rd-party tools to wrap around a service. The D7 wizards offer me more than enough help.

the problem is, that the app which needs to use the web services is written in D5 with no immediate plans to port to anything newer.

I have no doubt it can be done, but I need to know how...

By using IndySoap perhaps? See http://www.indyproject.org/SOAP/ for more info.

I don't think I need to explain what a webserver is but I do know that the D7 implementation is build around Rio, or Remote Interface classes. This is implemented in D7 (and D6) but not in D5. The only alternative I know is Indy SOAP but that still seems work in progress.
