>From reading the archives I'm beginning to understand why I'm
having so much trouble with soap under python.  ;-)  However,
like many others, I don't have a lot of choices in the matter.

We're using coldfusion on the webservers, and I need to tie
into them.  CF also supports CORBA, but the developers would
have to rewrite the objects to support it, and I'm not sure
how easy it would be to get CORBA running on it on linux anyway,
since it depends on borland's ORB.

With that out of the way, have any of you done work with
Python/CFMX?  It appears to depend fairly heavily on wsdl.
It works quite seamlessly with perl's SOAP::Lite, so I 
know it's not the CF end.  However, I don't want to have to
rewrite all my backend stuff in perl just to use web services,
so, if any of you can help me with the best SOAP implementation
to use for this, or if any of you have done some Python <> CFMX
work, (python as the client that is) I'd love to hear from you.
