Need example of MFC server app with SOAP/HTTP client

I have an MFC application (server) that I wish to be automated via clients on a network using the SOAP/HTTP protocol. In other words, it'll run and carry out requests made by clients via SOAP/HTTP.

* Note that SOAP must be used as opposed to any other remoting technology such as .NET Remoting, DCOM, CORBA, etc.
* It must be MFC and not rely on .NET at all

I'm only looking for an example as I'll take that example and make it work with my application. However, this must be a fully-working example with source code that I can freely use.

I need something that is MFC-based. ATL Server requires a server running IIS (i.e., a Web server). I need to be able to deploy the app on any box without restricting the user to having to have IIS or .NET installed.

http://www.codeproject.com/soap/ also has a lot of samples - unfortunately, part of them are .NET or C#, so you might have to do some digging...

Actually, we've been working on this for about 2 weeks now and can't find *anything* like what we want. Oh well. Thanks for the attempt.

Hi tom,
In such cases I think the best option is to use and translate a pure C/C++ implementation of SOAP, there are many in sourceforge.org for client/server sides:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/csoap/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gsoap2/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/easysoap/

Thanks BOL, but this shows an MFC client, which is the part we've figured out. It's coding a SOAP server in MFC that we are having problems with.

Nice way to treat your customers - by threatening them. All you needed to do was to remind me of the question *without* the remark about a penalty.
