I was interested in doing some work with SOAP web services, and a colleague suggested that I should look at Glue from WebMethods. Wow! I’ve been looking at it for a few hours and I am hooked! This this allows you to build a SOAP interface with freakishly little time and effort. Even better, although it isn’t free free, if you don’t need support on it then you can get a license for it that will allow you to do pretty much anything with it. I’ll see how I feel in a few days after actually building the functionality with it, but for now I am highly impressed.
