Definately. I'm not saying WSDL is better than IDL, I'm saying that WSDL
is better than no interface specification at all.

I use them in my day job (WebSphere). Microsoft's SOAP stuff has tools for
WSDL also. But I believe IBM and Microsoft have various patents on WSDL
processing, and as you say, WSDL isn't exactly nice. I haven't seen any
Free tools for parsing WSDL. Apache's Axis libraries can generate it
from Java classes and some extra type mapping information.
Anyway, this has drifted off-topic, since it's not about PB anymore.
No more from me.
