Methods and parameters of Web Service at runtime

Hi Experts!

I'm using Deplhi 7 and W-XP.

I need to obtain the methods and the parameters of a Web Service at runtime.

I know that I can obtain the methods and the parameters from a WSDL and integrate it to my code, but this it is not the case. I need that without being integrated in my code, I can have access to the methods and its parameters given a WSDL direction that is variable.

I mean, I give a WSDL to my program and as result I obtain the methods of the WS and their parameters (and their types. Or all types are String?).

Obvious, the WSDL is a variable that the user choose.

For example, in a Edit I put the WSDL, I push a button and in a memo I recover the methods and the parameters of those methods.

Then, with a certain method and its suitable parameters, I call to the method of the Web service, not to the direction of the WSDL, but to the location of the WS.

It is possible to do this?

It is urgent so, if this is possible, I need code. The points goes for the code.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, someone is here. :-)

What you want is possible yet also very complex. The Delphi code would need to parse the WSDL and analyze it. The code you're asking for could easily grow to around 5,000 to 10,000 lines of code.

Somebody knows if some VCL component (or something similar) exists that does this? Something of third parts?

Ok. I asked if is possible. My mistake. But also I said: "It is urgent so, if this is possible, I need code. The points goes for the code"

So, maybe, the right answer is: Not possible for free.

But there is no problem. If you suggest I must give the points, I do not have any problem in giving them. Really. Nevertheless, I am still without solving my urgent problem.
