In order to deal with this (and granted I know that endpoint version !=
backend version) I created a couple of things in a mythtv service api java
library ( https://github.com/MythTV-Clients/MythTV-Service-API) first the
code is generated from the wsdl, and second it checks the backend version
by using the http headers. I know that this is not ideal however I
certainly understand that this is a system only deployed on someone's LAN
and not a amazon/google style service accessible by the entire world. Is it
perfect? Certainly not; i ended up changing my app so that it is fully
isolated from myth changes.
