    hey

    i have been developing an application for a portal learning management system based on the sakai project as part of my honours project. i have finished building the various portal pages as views in interface builder and connected them to my x code project now i want to extract the information from servers via web services such as soap and i am kinda of stuck because i am new to iPhone programming as well as to web services and my project is due in 2 weeks time. i would appreciate any help to tackle this project and finish it within the time bounds

    thank you

    In your case it is best to avoid SOAP I think, as it can get rather complex w/o a web services framework to handle the marshalling and unmarshalling of messages and I don't think the iPhone has this API available.

    Stick with simple, basic XML messages. It is easy enough to read XML (see Apple's Seismic example) and XML can be built up and sent via HTTP pretty easily as well.
