soap/wsdlDriver from Python.
The cool thing is that this is done with a helper / wrapper library, that looks like it could be used to expose virtually any Ruby module / class that can be accessed through IronRuby to IronPython. Using his ruby module, the code looks like this:
from ruby import _import_, get_class
Soap = get_class('SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory')
client = Soap('http://localhost1/Service1.asmx?WSDL').create_rpc_driver()
1. I can very easy use everything I know about the .Net Framework, VB.Net, and C#What's even more gratifying is that he has been exploring IronPython through IronPython in Action and likes that too. A slight misspelling gives rise to my favourite quote about IronPython in Action:
2. I can run IronPython in Visual Studio
3. I can reference ESRI's ArcObjects libraries in Visual Studio and IronPython
IronPython In Action is probably the best Python book I have ever pickled up because it also explains a lot of not just Python but also about .Net.If any book deserved to be pickled up, this is it... Have a great 2010.
