Welcome to the Python Web Services Project! The Web Services for
Python Project provides libraries for developing web services using the
python programming language. The libraries implement the various
protocols used when writing web services including SOAP, WSDL, and
other related protocols.
For additional information on the Web Services for Python Project see the Source Forge project page. The pywebsvcs-talk mailing list is where discussions takes place regarding the project; the archives are here. The mailing list is greatly preferred over the forum.

- A library of WSDL and other classes useful for building Web
Services stacks. This is common code used by both SOAPpy and ZSI.
In SOAPpy it is a separate package, but with ZSI it must be imported as
