Unmanaged C++ and SOAP

I need to make a SOAP call to a web service using unmanaged C++.

Microsoft documentation on the SOAP toolkits says that the toolkits are being deprecated in favour of .Net. and especially recommends that the SOAP toolkit not be used on Windows 2003 machines (my target environment).

Question: What is the correct way to make SOAP calls from unmanaged C++ code?

Or, forego SOAP and pass the appropriate XML to the web service.

Thanks cookre,

Looks promising.

Problem is getting SPROXY to work - it chokes on the definitions tag with a SDL1005 error.

Any ideas on this?

I fear you may have to take the brute force and ignorance approach by looking at the WSDL and generating the XML yourself.

Thanks Cookre,

I can work around the SPROXY issue but decided against the SOAP route - going to load an XML file directly with info I need instead of having a webservice feed it back to me.

Thanks for the link - will be useful in other projects.
