InfoPath supports only Document Literal - That's not lame at all!
Astoundingly lame: InfoPath 2003 has become the first alleged Web Services tool I've worked with that can't consume Cape Clear's Airport Weather Web Service. Point InfoPath at http://live.capescience.com/wsdl/AirportWeather.wsdl and what you get back is "InfoPath cannot work with this Web Service because it uses RPC encoding. Only document literal encoding is supported." So much for the wide support of XML standards they're always promising. [Larkware]
Mike thinks that InfoPath is lame since it can't do RPC Enc. I submit that creating a forms/document-centric view of an RPC endpoint would be icky at best. Since InfoPath (and Microsoft and others) see the world of XML messaging as a document-centric one, it makes sence that this new forms creation tool would only speak Doc Lit. Frankly, I'd have been disappointed if it DID support RPC encoding. If it did, wouldn't it be a development tool?
