Hi,

I need to make a call to a .NET WCF webservice from PL/SQL in Oracle. The webservice will have a WSDL. Is there a tool I can use, or generic method available, to interrogate a WSDL and allow me to pass the required parameters to the web service method?

I don't have much experience in PL/SQL, so anything you can provide would be great! FYI, some of the examples on google, like the Tom Krueger example, don't seem to work. I have spent a lot of time googling this one, so would prefer a definitive answer, rather than a few links to check out.

Cheers,
Brett
