4S4C is a general purpose toolkit for exposing COM component as SOAP services. Every effort has been made to ensure it interoperates will all the major SOAP toolkits "Out of the box" (of course, you don't actually get a box, you'll have to imagine for yourself what a 4S4C box might look like).
4S4C can translate SOAP requests into method calls against any ole automation interface, and is not limited to IDispatch interfaces only. (don't worry if you don't know what that means, we'll get to it later in the tutorial). The results of the call are translated back into a response SOAP message.
4S4C is shipped complete with listeners (bindings) for HTTP[S] (via IIS/ASP) and SMTP (via the Windows 2000 SMTP Service), however if you need to, you can easily write listeners for other transports.
