> case anyone is interested:

Ok, this is odd.  The sample Ruby client I provided works fine, i.e.
the session data is retained after the call to login.Login.

However, this sample Perl client does *not* retain the session data:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Frontier::Client;

my $url = "http://localhost:3000/webservice/api";
my $client = Frontier::Client->new(url=>$url) or die $!;

$client->call('login.Login', 'user', 'XXX');
print $client->call('hardware.FindHardwareById', 2), "\n";
print $client->call('hardware.GetAllHardware');

Why would session data be retained with the Ruby code but
not the Perl code?

This is Ruby 1.8.4, Webrick, Windows XP Pro, btw.

Ruby's xmlrpc library knows how to handle cookies. But this
functionality is
required  neither by xmlrpc spec nor by soap spec. For interoperability
purposes I'd recommend sending username and password with each request.
