SOAP in thunderbird 3.0a1pre

mozilla.org
Hi, I'm working on porting an extension to thunderbird 3.0a1pre and am
working with the current version from:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-trunk/

What I've found is that the current release doesn't seem to know about
SOAP.  When this is copy/pasted into the error console:
   typeof SOAPCall;
... in thunderbird 1.5 and 2, it reports "function", in 3.0a1pre it
reports "undefined".

Can anyone shed any light on why this might be the case?  Also, is there
anything I can do to get SOAP under 3.0?  eg. building from source
rather than using the win32-installer.

Thanks -

Leni.

If you build from source, you can build SOAP, yes.  Typical users won't have it,
though.

Oh, I see.  Thanks for clarifying.

I can find chatty references to alternative implementations, eg:
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332174#c3
   http://www.internetnews.com/security/article.php/3695731
but I can't find any usable source code.  This:
   http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/webservices/library/ws-wsajax/
comes close but doesn't seem suitable for use in extensions.

If anyone has any pointers to a javascript SOAP implementation I'd be
interested to know, otherwise it looks like bare-metal XMLHttpRequest
for me.

Leni.
