Calling Web Services Using SOAP

#1
I have a lot of XML testfiles that can be sent to a webservice by using a
VBScript. This script wraps the XML in an SOAP envelope and sends it to the
webservice.

I want to do migrate my VBScripts to PowerShell but can't get it to work.
I've searched the Internet for examples, but without success. I don't want
(need?) to generate Proxies (the most examples I found) but just want to send
my XML by using SOAP messages.

Any help, suggestions or examples are very welcome!

Use this as your search target "SOAP Powershell"

One of the first two hits I came up contained two different methods

1) Requires Visaul Studio but very easy

2) BYOP (build your own proxy) more difficult but much of the work is done
for you for at least for simple web service proxies

http://www.nivot.org/2007/08/07/NewImprovedGetWebServiceProxyGeneratorForPowerShell.aspx

I've not tried either however both of these people are very accomplished
Powershell programmers.

Having said that if you do have Visual Studio with all the features it has
to consume, code, debug and use web services I would take that approach.

If you're setting up the SOAP messages yourself, you could just use
System.Net.Webclient to send them to the service.
