VMware just announced the availability of a WS-Management (client side) library written in Perl "Starting with VMware's VIPerl Toolkit v1.5, an experimental version of Perl WS-Management library is included for infrastructure management with Web Services. The library currently supports 7 out of the 11 generic operations described in the WS-Management - CIM Binding. The library is available for download at http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/viperltoolkit" Nice ! Maybe this can act as a guideline for the openwsman language bindings. Lets see.
