With so much push towards SOA architectures, you might have lot of your common code encapsulated in Webservices. Calling a webservice from .Net is a piece of cake. But how about calling a webservice from ASP or VBscript ?? That sounds like a practical requirement to me.

Well the two solutions I can suggest are :

1. Use SOAP toolkit – You will have to install the SOAP toolkit on your system

2. Use XMLHTTP – Real simple and you don’t have to install anything on your machine.
