Calling SSL web service from win32 dll or unmanged code
Posted on 2005-04-27
Any one know of a product that allows a win32 windows application to call web services via a win32 dll or NON .net application/interface?
We have a win32 application that can call dlls. We've implemented the MS SOAP 3.0 toolkit, but I'm running into problems now when using the toolkit to call SSL secured web services.
1. Figure out how to call SSL web services with MS SOAP 3.0? Which also happends to be obsolete very soon. I've done some reading to find out how to do this, but it looks rather time consuming and solutions were not complete. Our test web service server also uses test certificates instead of real CA authorized ones.
2. Figure out how to build a .net dll and wrap it in a COM interface that our program can access.
3. Purchase a product that already does 2 above.
I would really appreaciate anyone with other ideas on a solution... THANKS.
