I'm back on Ruby-ish stuff this week. The work I'm doing has a big SOAP component. The built-in Ruby SOAP library does quite well for my needs. It basically kicks the Python equivalent, ZSI, around the block.
Not that SOAP is the only web service in town but, for my projects, I have to use it because the upstream providers only offer SOAP.
Only a few more days until the season premiere of Lost! Yay!!!!
