Not that I am advocating SOAP, or any other method, but this
is a misleading statement. You might as well say 'If we go
with CORBA, I'd be left writing the CORBA messages by
hand'. Of course, no one would do that since you could
use a CORBA library to do that for you. And that is precisely
what you would do with SOAP. There are several free SOAP
libraries available, for different languages.
