Webservices - without Service Connect, without Visual Studio

I've done it from Python code, but it was a royal pain finding a SOAP library that supported all the
extensions required to get this working.

I've found it easier to migrate my code to IronPython, and then use the BO dlls directly. Faster too.

Did anyone ever succeed in consuming an Epicor webservice, without using
either Epicor Service Connect or Microsoft Visual Studio?

The whole idea of webservices should be that it should not matter which
development platform you are using. I'd like to be able to prove that in
a small "hello world" type of application.

I would love to see an example built using SoapUI (http://www.soapui.org/)
or code in Java, perl, python, PHP or anthing similar.

Did you use the WSE or WCF services?

Thanks,
Pim
I've done it with PHP it can be done although its a giant pain

I've only ever extracted data using PHP and ADODB, but I've never allowed
writing back to the DB as it would never go through the BO's. That makes me
a bit nervous. I would be interested to find out if anyone has encountered
a great way of parsing everything through the BOs. An Epicor PHP class is
in order! We plan to show information on our website from within Epicor,
but it would not be necessary for them to write to it.

That's a very common, and sane approach in building web applications around
Epicor data.

Well, there's php-soap. People have been using that to build PHP classes
that
consume Exchange Webservices. So why not Epicor Webservices. Exchange is
even
more complicated as it requires NTLM authentication.
