Almost, an EDI standard that almost pre-dates the internet.

The service to connect isn't even the problem, it's the content I have to send...
There are about 120 possible values, all encoded by a six-number digit, with two leading 0's and three digits for the length (last one is the precision).
So let's say I get "DH1111110012345605000654321052" (and we're talking lines up to thousand characters).
I now know it's a D(efinition)H(eader) for event 111111.
The first field is 123456 (discard the leading 0's) and it has a length of 5.
The next field is 654321 and has a length of 5, of which 2 are decimals.
The next line could look like "VH111111Hello01234" V(alue)H(eader), which should be parsed as values "Hello" and 12.34.
The meaning of 123456 and 654321 comes from a document I have and isn't known to either the computer nor me Dead | X|

Luckily I only have to create the file, not parse it.
Although that's bad enough as it is, as the format has some form of layered structure where my input has not (a simple CSV file).
And, of course, some values are mandatory while others are forbidden in certain scenario's.
So you see, WCF, SOAP and XML are the least of my problems (in fact, I'd gladly trade this format for XML!) Big Grin | :-D
