You should be able to use a variety of SOAP clients to talk to your SOAP
services. SOAP support is available for many different languages, including
Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, Delphi, JavaScript, Perl, Python, Ruby,
SmallTalk, PHP, Tcl, and more. You can find listings of SOAP implementations

One word of caution: some of these implementations are not complete and/or
are not supported. Interoperability among implementations usually works, but
can be tricky.
