Description STAVROS SOTIRCHOS 2013-05-22 03:35:59 UTC
I would like to comment out a serious problem I faced with mono implementation of web services. 
I am writing an app for a company with several existing java web services that use rpc/literal style.
I realized that although those services are completely supported from the standard .NET framework and 
the wsdl tool creates successfully the proxy, the same is not possible at all with mono. It is obvious that 
those java web services cannot change to document/literal or other style and it is quite a big problem 
not to be able to use those web services with other means than handmade code.
