in reply to modern ways of doing web services

REST + JSON is the current fashionable set of abbreviations.

I was put off SOAP::Lite for life when I found that it couldn't interoperate with some Microsofty SOAP thing and reliably send/receive an array of arrays across the network. We ended up embedding CSV in SOAP. Oh what fun that project was. No, I don't know at which end the bug was. I don't care either.

    I have the exact same experience with SOAP::Lite and microsoft based SOAP webservices. Took quite a bit of hacking around to get things working using SOAP::Lite and the .NET webservice. Since then i have moved to using LWP::UserAgent and HTTP::Request to send templates processed by Template Toolkit, with great success. I even find it generally handles a higher frequency of SOAP calls.

    Thankfully in the future our company is moving to more JSON/REST type api's. Lots of the newer frameworks (Like Mojolicous) support JSON out of the box, which is great!
