My boss has developers that use SOAP? How can I help them debug their lame web2.0 non-sense? (Or how can i search inside a given http session for a string using tethereal?)

If you're somehow suckered into debugging an issue with SOAP and the developers can't tell what's going on, you may be asked to help from a network level. You will of course have no problem because the following command will decode all SOAP traffic on the local network (matched against the port and ip of the server) and search for a given string:

tethereal -V -d tcp.port==8080,http -S -w OUTPUTFILEHERE -i eth0 -R "ip.addr eq and http contains HEREisMYstupidSOAPstring"

That command obviously has to be run on the right system with the correct values for your problem.
