Simple SOA Client

Several months ago I needed to demonstrate a workflow task in a BPEL Service. Searching the web, I came across an old colleague. In his spare time he founded Using it reminded me of an email client like Outlook Express. It supports multiple protocols and more importantly renders the SOAP message as a HTML Form. So for the scenario that I was working on, it was simply defined by importing the WSDL for the BPEL Service to define the call back and messages. Once defined a few properties were specified and my magoo client would receive messages, allow me to view and then respond back to the waiting BPEL Service. All the work was done within a day and demonstrated a human workflow component for SOA Pilot.
