The Zolera SOAP Infrastructure

ZSI, the Zolera SOAP Infrastructure, is a pure-Python module that
provides an implementation of SOAP messaging, as described in SOAP 1.1
Specification (see  It can also be used to
build applications using SOAP Messages with Attachments (see  ZSI is intended to make it
easier to write web services in Python.

In particular, ZSI parses and generates SOAP messages, and converts
between native Python datatypes and SOAP syntax. Simple dispatch and
invocation methods are supported.  There are no known bugs.  It's only
known limitation is that it cannot handle multi-dimensional arrays.

ZSI is built on top of DOM.  It requires Python 2.3 or later.  
It is open source.  We hope you find it useful.

The ZSI.twisted package will only be built if you're using Python >= 2.4, 
and in order to use it you'll need twisted >= 2.0 and twistedWeb >= 0.5.0

The documentation (in PDF and HTML) is accurate.  We should probably
restructure the document as a HOWTO.  You probably can't usefully edit
the docs without having the Python2.0 sources and some other utilities
(TeX, pdfLaTeX, latex2html) on a Unix or Cygwin installation.  If you
want to format or revise the docs, see "Documentation Tools" in the
