if you use perl, SOAP-lite is a module that is used
if you use java, try out apache axis
I am sure that there are other packages out there for other languages. look with google.

why reinvent the wheel? The api is very easy to use and there are lots of examples. Just my 2 cents.

I've searched alot and downloaded alot of libraries like (gsoap, soap toolkit and others) i tried to use it but nothing worked.. i guess cuz i'm new it confuses me more.. (or maybe stupid) which i'm not !.. when i wanted to use the microsoft's soap toolkit i didn't know what IIS is and why it should be turned on.. and i think it's too complicated for the user to run many things before actually using my server.. what do you think? the project i'm working on is very simple and direct.. i wanted to use soap so any future clients could use my server and make the communication easy.. i think i need to chat with a good programmer who have used soap.. any offers for help??
and thank you kawas for your concerns.. :)
