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 http://www.magoosoft.com/. 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.
