David:

         Here are the results of my survey on XBase as it affects SOAP 
implementations and Compilers:

In looking at XBase as it relates to SOAP implementations and Compilers, 
within my company it seems that it may be something we look at implementing 
in the future; however, at this time there is no work going on in the area 
of the Xerxes complies.

  I did a search on the WEB for SOAP Implementations that were implementing 
XBase  and came up with no mention of XBase in any of the projects and 
products that I reviewed.  I sent emails to several companies, but to date 
I have received no replies to my requests.

I requested information on the SOAPBuilders mailing list and only received 
three and I have pasted the information below.

 From SOAPBuilders


1.)

"SOAP Messages With Attachments" [1] allows use of xml:base, along with
other means, to establish the base URI used when resolving relative URIs
that reference attachments. We are in the process of adding support for
attachments, including this use of xml:base, to the "Microsoft SOAP
Toolkit" SOAP implementation.

Other then this use for attachments, the SOAP Toolkit does not use
xml:base.


2.)

pocketSOAP & 4s4c are in a similar position.  [ REF 1.) ]



3.)

This is in response to your survey of SOAP implementations. I am glad to
inform you about our project: the SOAP C and C++ stub compiler. More
information about the SOAP stub compiler can be found at:

http://www.cs.fsu.edu/~engelen/soap.html

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

- Regards, Robert van Engelen

Conclusion:

Since Microsoft is including support for XBase within their "Microsoft SOAP
Toolkit" SOAP implementation, it will become widely supported in the 
future.  Also, the approach of provide a SOAP STUB compiler will become 
more widely accepted in the future as well.
