So I typed the title of this article into Google and it gave me a whole lot of articles but none of them are what I was looking for because I had to craft the SOAP envelopes myself. It left me wondering if there was an easier way. One of my developers previously had hand coded the SOAP envelopes himself finding that articles online were either advocating this or the libraries they offered were stale. I felt like maybe I was asking the wrong question and again was left stating to myself that there must be an easier way!!!
