Soap and the Busy Frontier Developer

Ok. Now I have 75 pages of method documantation and 160K of a WSDL document.

That’s beautiful Jimmy, but what’s it mean?
Bollocks if I know.

Well, 160 types, 3 transports, and 43 methods for starters. And a search for something that can turn this into frontier glue code, satisfying the laziness quality. Impatience is setting in too. I think hubris may come into play when I try to write a tool to avoid typing in all the repetitive stuff. Somehow it seems better that way.

My browser tabs so far:

The WSDL client for Frontier comes close to being useful, apart for the apparent dependence on .net, which has not gotten anywhere near my machine.
