soup-0.7.4: description + notes

Soup is a SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) implementation in C.

It provides an queued asynchronous callback-based mechanism for sending and servicing SOAP requests, and a WSDL (Web Service Definition Language) to C compiler which generates client stubs and server skeletons for easily calling and implementing SOAP methods.

It uses the Glib main loop and is designed to work well with GTK applications. This enables GNOME applications to access SOAP servers on the network in a completely asynchronous fashion, very similar to the Gtk+ programming model (a synchronous operation mode is also supported for those who want it).

The WSDL compiler will help you make your applications interoperate with services that expose their descriptions through WSDL.
