It appears that SecureBlackBox doesn't work with Delphi's THTTPRIO. It does work with RemObjects but I think if you could provide a SOAP package this would be a killer feature for us in need of signing SOAP envelopes.

If you like the idea, vote for it on https://www.eldos.com/sbb/wishlist.php

As I understand, you are talking about creation of own SOAP components. Given that modern trend is RESTful APIs, I think SOAP is fading away and it doesn't make much sense to start supporting it now.

SOAP is long live beast in enterprise apps. eGovernment projects in Russia and some other countries are based on it. Unfortunately, Delphi doesn't support WS-I specification for web-services inter-operability and can only produce rpc/encoded style SOAP 1.1 web servers. Please, see https://forums.embarcadero.com/message.jspa?messageID=402814#402814
So Delphi completely sucks to Java web-Axis and .NET WCF in that field. Combined with WS-Security 1.1 or later SOAP message signing it must be a killer feature. Have a look at TVirtualInterface added to Delphi XE2 release specially for consuming SOAP web-services. I've heard that class can be back-ported to Delphi 2010 and XE. Probably, using TVirtualInterface for making SOAP support in SecureBlackBox could help a lot. Thanks.

SOAP is used in my country as the method used for delivery of electronic legal documents, so at least in this case this will stay for quite a while.

Here in Belgium all communication with governmental agencies happens using SOAP.
We need to interact with new services, and they are requiring ws-security 1.0.
These are new services, and we know extra services will be offered in the years to come. All are using soap and ws-security 1.0.

Since neither Remobjects or Indy SOAP can handle the WSDL (too complicated, generated by Java Spring) but Delphi itself can, we require this feature too:
to have THTTPPrio support in blackbox would be hugely appreciated.

WS-Security is a separate format with minimal demand. Also, THTTPRIO is not extensible. We just can't hook into it (maybe they've changed something in recent versions but earlier it was a locked box).

Thanks guys! That's awesome news!
Michael, could you say why Remobjects doesn't understand complicated WSDL of Java Spring? Don't they support WS-Security and WS-I(Interoperability) features? Have you tried to contact them for this kind of info? Personally, I was considering to combine their framework and library for XML message signing to achieve my goal.
