Initial clean-up of the SOAP messaging facilities

Laurent Petre requested to merge cleanup/soap-messaging into develop


This MR consists in a first initial clean-up of the SOAp messaging facilities. In particular,

  • the GEMSOAPToolBox class is removed and its methods included in the gem::utils::soap namespace;
  • the common xdata::soap::Serializer class is used to serialize the SOAP messages parameters;
  • the extraction of SOAP parameters from a message is templatized to be compatible with all xdata types.

In addition,

  • the include directives have been ordered in all touched files;
  • the legacy CfgType and RunType parameters have been deleted.

Related Issue

This MR is part of the first cleaning steps for #170 and #171.

How Has This Been Tested?

SOAP messages can still be sent are received, successfully starting a run is still possible.
