  • You can consume web services written in any language as long as it's written to conform to some specification.  If you're using SOAP then the built-in Web Service Reference wizard should work.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
