Simple SOAP Request Client

I am looking for a simple client not a full devlopers toolkit in which I can send a gSoap or AXIS request to a server and recieve some sort of output.  I dont know a lot about SOAP or development but just need to be able to test some simple queries.

Thank you

You have two options

1) Web Services Explorer of Eclipse
2) SOAP UI (A soap testing tool).

I would suggest 1st one as it gives a nice UI, second one allows you do things more at XML level with support to advanced stuff like WS-Security and MTOM.

for both all you need is the web service  WSDL
