Can I call web service from C program?

Can I call web service from C program?

I've been asked to code a C program to call a .NET web service from a Unix application... Has anyone done this, and are there any suggestions? Thanks...

RE: Can I call web service from C program?

From client's side Web service is just a HTTP request&response with bloated encoding of parameters and results.

You need http client, xml writer/reader, soap envelope & bit of good old socket mess (and of course specs of web service - wsdl file).
(network spying on HTTP port also helps - Wireshark FTW! )

RE: Can I call web service from C program?

Thanks... Do you have a C code sample of this? What components do you recommend? Have you used gnome's libxml?
