I'm diving into the SharePoint SOAP WSDLs. I'm going to be writing an frontpage using AJAX for UI to collect some child sites and their underlying lists. This is on an authenticated site and I'm currently trying to use SoapUI/BurpSuite to generate my requests. SoapUI isn't quite descriptive enough, and BurpSuite is so cumbersome.

All I really need to do is make sure the requests return appropriately, but I'm spending way too much time spinning my wheels trying to get my setup working.

I'm wondering if there's a better way to go about this, specifically relating to which tools are best to use for developing for SharePoint WSDLs.

Use SPServices, a jQuery plugin that allows easy access to most of the (WCF) Services provided by SharePoint.
