LOL - you could pickup the phone and have a little "talk" with your partner (i.e. point him to the SOAP spec), or that channel of communication equally broken?
I appreciate the humerous response Thomas. Ya, that's exactly what i want them to do, but knowing this particular partner and:
A) Their ability to execute on a change request
B) Their desire to change anything
I was trying to find a useable workaround in the mean time. What good are standards unless people use them (correctly). It's funny that they can handle a fully qualified SOAP request, but they can't speak the language on the response. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to lean on them a bit more. Thanks.
