BusinessConnect Version Updates

I was assisting someone with installation of the Auto-print demo, when I stumbled across a small tangle; the BusinessConnect API WSDLs have changed enough since I built the original Tririga Client library (I think against platform 2.1.5 or 2.1.6) that it is no longer compatible with the current platform release 2.1.8. So I rebuilt the client library, not a big deal... except the examples (such as the print task) that relied on the old API definitions are now incompatible with the new API calls.

So the solution (I guess) would be to rebuild the examples and update to align with the newest version of the BusinessConnect API... but that will prevent them from running properly against any older platform version, and I suppose would imply that I'll have to keep rebuilding all this stuff as new platform releases come out.

In any case, the affected code would be from the following articles:

Auto-Printing in Workflows
Tririga Unplugged (Part 1 and Part 2)
Tririga Syndicator
Tririga Suggest
