Google turned up a link to it from the python.org site that was v. 0.4 (or something) dated 2003. Didn't find the official home page in my quick search! >The upshot is that I have to agree with >Graham D's response: use XML-RPC: it's well standardized and usable >from a huge number of clients with minimal effort. > > > I was under the impression that MS web services were SOAP based not XML-RPC based? I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Web Services, but the requirement is pretty much that Joe Punter somewhere on the web can use his normal PC dev tools and code up calls to my Python functions (in VB, Excel or Visual Studio etc) just as easily/conveniently as if I had published the service using IIS or whatever is the official MS-blessed way of doing this. My international colleagues are using WebLogic or JBOSS for doing web services, but they are a java shop and all my logic is in python! Greg. You are in a maze of twisty little acronyms, all different.
